This fictionalized account of the real-life journalist, author, and teacher Lafcadio Hearn is told through the voices of the significant women in his life. Narrators Cassandra Campbell, Lisa Flanagan, Adenrele Ojo, and Emily Woo Zeller each perform one section of the story, as told by Hearn's mother, his first wife in America, his second wife in Japan, and his literary agent. Each narrator nicely captures the concerns of her character and her character's particular relationship issues with Hearn, who is not portrayed in a favorable light. For example, his mother laments their emotional and physical distance, his Japanese wife tries to justify his odd behavior, and everyone wants a piece of his financial legacy. Listeners who are familiar with Hearn's life and work will especially appreciate this audiobook. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
