Gary Furlong narrates a touching father-and-son story that will leave listeners sorry when it's over. When Antonio is 18, he and his father travel from Italy to Marseille, where Antonio's doctor will tell them whether his early-onset epilepsy has cured itself. Father and son haven't been close, but this trip creates a lifelong connection. When the doctor prescribes 48 hours off his medicine with no sleep as the ultimate test, Antonio and his father stay awake together. Furlong convincingly creates Antonio's first experiences with his condition as a child and the many revealing moments shared with his father on their current journey. He deftly delivers the pair's growing tenderness, mutual respect, and awakening to each other's humanity. A loving, thoughtful coming-of-age story . . . beautifully performed.
