Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Jayston

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This debut novel from a legendary rock star--Pete Townshend, of The Who--is a multigenerational tale of love, loss, and music, narrated by Michael Jayston. The story frames the life of an up-and-coming rocker, Walter, through the guidance and life story of his godfather, Louis. Jayston lends the narrative a heavy dose of gravitas balanced by a personal tone. Characters, who play more prominently in this work than plot, are brought to life with an array of accents and tonal inflections, along with clever reproductions of phone conversations and short clips of music. Jayston's intimate delivery elevates an engaging audiobook to a must-listen for Townshend's fans and listeners in search of a captivating story. J.M.M.
