Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Dion Graham's character range is on display in Pelecanos's first collection of stories. The diversity of characters runs the gamut. And while Graham doesn't nail every accent in the collection, he thoroughly grasps the element that connects all of the characters: struggle. Whether it's conflict on the street over drugs or identity conflict, family strife at home or an internal battle with right and wrong, Graham pulls listeners in, helping them empathize with the characters. Graham also exhibits flexibility adjusting to Pelecanos's storytelling styles, like the screenplay dialogue in the title novella. Graham delivers atmosphere, dark humor, and genuine humanity in a great listening experience. J.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
