Narrator Niall Buggy gives voice to 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan in Anne Griffin's debut novel. We meet him at the bar of the local hotel where he is raising a glass and a toast to each of the five people most important to his life. Through these toasts, Hannigan tells his story. Buggy's Irish brogue, pacing, and emotion are impeccable as the listener is transported to the bar stool next to Maurice. We hear the love in his voice as he talks of Sadie, rage as he recalls childhood bullying, regret for failures as a father and husband, and humor and wonder at the amazing gift of life through it all. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and carry Maurice with you long after you finish the story. N.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
