Bronson Pinchot delivers a powerful performance of Mark Helprin's stunning novel. Jules Lacour was born in a garret and hidden from the Nazis. His life began in darkness, a start that now fuels his intense love of life, art, romance, and goodness. As an accomplished cellist and instructor at the Sorbonne, he embraces the beauty of Paris, but upon his great love's death, Lacour must face the cold realities of life. For once Lacour is forced to compromise his principles and take risks. Pinchot is given the task of expressing countless emotions, voices, and accents that manifest the rich Parisian landscape. His portrayal of Lacour's dissonant emotions is gut-wrenching as he moves from spirited joy to a somber tone of shock and disappointment. Helprin's writing is intoxicating, and Pinchot embraces every syllable. E.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2017]
