Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirsten Potter, William Charlton

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Kirsten Potter captures the Alter sisters in this skillfully written, quick-witted novel. With her well-modulated tones and even pacing, Potter’s portrayals of sisters Lady, Vee, and Delph Alter, with their tight family bond and inherited guilt, are distinctive and energetic. Listeners will empathize with the family's history of suicide as well as their humorous approach to life and its many coincidences. William Charlton delivers the final section, from the point of view of Danny Smoke, the Alter sisters' cousin. An eclectic mix of fictional characters and historical real-life people, such as Albert and Mileva Einstein, Frank Zappa, and Allen Ginsberg, are involved with the Alter family. With engaging narrators and an intriguing story, listeners will be spellbound. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
