Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Thom Rivera

Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Thom Rivera gives this novel an unforgettable performance as he captures the diminishing spirit and dying body of José María lvarez. Rivera's diction is spot-on as he delivers Spanish, American, Swiss, and Indian accents. He powerfully conveys the tortured thoughts of the flawed and complex private banker at the center of this compelling work as he re-creates the aristocrat's life story. This fictional tour de force is packed with insights on private banking, long, satisfying passages on fishing, and even a cameo of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. The audiobook comes across as a dramatic monologue in which lvarez, riddled with cancer, tries to make amends for his life with his family and restore his soul. A.D.M.
