You've never read a novel like this one. McCann's work ties past with present, the ordinary with the bizarre, calm with chaos. Centered around New York City, the story spans 50 years. The listener learns about the men who dug the train tunnels in 1916 and later about one descendant who lives in those same tunnels, deluded and addicted. What happens in between is carefully revealed in small, fascinating scenes that come through flashbacks. Peter Jay Fernandez lends a perfect voice to the novel, capturing the harshness of tunnel work, the desperation of loss, and the heartbreak of prejudice. With an amazing vocal and acting range, Fernandez brings this work to life. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
