Narrator Richard Poe guides listeners into the heart of high society in 1920s Newport, Rhode Island, in Pulitzer Prize-winning author Thornton Wilder's last novel. This imagined memoir of Theophilus "Teddy" North--inspired by Wilder's real-life twin brother, who died at birth--will enchant listeners who are seeking a compelling audio treat. In a forthright tone, Poe depicts the comic adventures of 29-year-old Teddy as he aids a runaway heiress, a shut-in, an illustrator in trouble with the Mob, and many others. But this audiobook is more than a series of humorous sketches. Poe imbues each character with a deep humanity that allows listeners to empathize with their predicaments. Poe's commitment is evident in his perceptive character portrayals, many complete with lively accents. M.J. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
