Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tovah Feldshuh

Fiction • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This gem of an audiobook combines Yaniv Iczkovits's charming story and an exceptional narration by Tovah Feldshuh to create an experience listeners will relish. The audiobook transcends cultural boundaries and is one that listeners of all backgrounds will embrace and enjoy. Fanny Keismann, daughter of a Jewish ritual slaughterer, follows in her father's footsteps, only to give up the unwomanly career to become a wife with five children. When Fanny's husband abandons her, she embarks on a journey to locate him and bring him home. Feldshuh's performance is stunning. She captures the humor, grace, and intensity of Fanny's search, enhancing those traits by precisely defining the many characters Fanny encounters along the way and the dialogue among them. D.J.S.
