Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christian Baskous

Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Christian Baskous delivers this collection of stories by award-winning author Ron Rash with a soft Southern accent, deftly matching the tone and substance of the material. Baskous evokes empathy and horror in these tales of hard-hit Appalachian people dealing with poverty, sorrow, addiction, and more. He allows a weary, threadbare tone to seep into his voice, evoking the sandpaper quality of life lived on the edge. Baskous raises the emotional level of the stories, which are already poetic in nature. A match made in literary heaven, Rash and Baskous capture bleak moments that make listeners feel the pain and joy of life. R.O.
