THE GIMMICKS

by | Read by Will M. Watt, Mike Ortego, Mary Jane Wells

Historical Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Will Watt and Mike Ortego provide the main narration of this novel about the multigenerational impact of the Armenian Genocide. The story blends the worlds of wrestling and backgammon with scenes of political intrigue and violence. Both narrators do not overemphasize the most devastating moments, focusing listeners' attention upon the effects of historical events on the course of everyday lives. Watt illuminates the tensions that arise from cousins Avo and Ruben's participation in Armenian causes. Ortego adeptly captures former wrestler Terry's canny but thoughtful tone as he reflects on managing Avo's wrestling career in the U.S. and on the loss of his younger brother. Mary Jane Wells reveals Avo's former girlfriend, Mina's unease with Ruben in the only chapter she narrates. M.J. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
