Four narrators bring Deborah Eisenberg’s highly anticipated story collection to life, and listeners will be delighted with the variety. Eisenberg herself narrates two of the stories, and, while she doesn’t have the vocal gifts of the other three narrators, her voice suits the intimate tone of the works. Julianne Moore narrates a wonderful story, “Cross Off and Move On,” using her acting gifts to get in the head of the main character perfectly. Wallace Shawn’s distinctive voice lends a sardonic note to the dialogue in the final story, “Recalculating.” Actor and experienced narrator Josh Hamilton’s simply modulated reading of two of the stories allows the listener to focus on Eisenberg’s wonderful use of language. A rich listening experience will attract a wide audience. D.G.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
