Robert Fass's skill in blurring the line between author and narrator shines in this mix of memoir and random musings by a Swedish entomologist. Fass’s easygoing tone and natural cadences highlight the author's enthusiasm for life and his curiosity about a range of topics from hover flies to art and literature. Listeners will be charmed by the idiosyncrasies of field biology and will be caught up in the stories about what it's like to pursue a solitary career. Fass's expressive narration allows listeners to appreciate the author's wry and self-deprecating humor. In addition, he handles the Swedish and Latin terms without a hitch, maintaining the conversational flow of the essays. Warning: Listeners may be tempted to invest in their own fly nets.
