Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

This astonishing true story has been compared to Angela's Ashes for good reason. Experiencing a litany of human and inhuman cruelties that shaped his boyhood, Antwone Fisher was spared nothing. Orphaned, emotionally and physically battered, cheated, and demeaned in every way you can think of by those supposed to protect and support him, he managed to hang on to some mystery of courage and character that kept him upright and moving forward through years of darkness, until there gradually unfolded a reversal of fortune so deserved and sweet that it would move a stone. Tony Penny, an entire acting company in a single person, gives an amazing performance, and having Fisher's actual voice presenting the opening and closing of the story is inspired, and welcome. B.G.
