Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Gemma Whelan

Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Fifty-something Lizzie Prain snapped and killed her difficult husband, Jacob, with a garden shovel. Now she’s consumed with identifying the best way to dispose of his body. Narrator Gemma Whelan delivers this delectable dark comedy with a touch of irony as Lizzie tries to solve her problem by employing her skills as a chef. Whelan’s intonations and perfect pacing capture Lizzie’s pragmatic considerations on how to cook a body. She also conveys Lizzie’s anxious joy at her new freedom as well as her attraction to her new friend, Tom. Overall, Whelan’s performance is delightfully dark and delicious. M.F.
