This story of small-town people is richly detailed, American to the marrow, and wonderfully portrays its main character, Virgil Wander. MacLeod Andrews powerfully narrates this exquisitely written audiobook with a requisite nod to the regional accent of the Great Lakes. His ability to reveal the mind of the main character sets this work apart. Having suffered an accident, Virgil is now recovering his cognition and his life. Greenstone, a fictional small community, sits on an inland sea (Lake Superior), has a still operating, aging movie palace (the Empress), and a massive dangerous fish (a sturgeon). The story is replete with off- and onstage characters--including a former movie impresario, a vanished baseball player, and a kite-flying Norwegian--who invigorate this remarkable novel.
