In this novel, author Francisco Goldman recounts the experiences of his protagonist, named Francisco Goldberg, as he straddles various identities--Catholic and Jewish, white and Latino, native and expat--while navigating the pleasures and pitfalls of love and international travel. Robert Fass provides a thoughtful narration, portraying Goldberg as an intellectually minded man who is baring his soul in a deeply self-revelatory work. Fass is introspective, confessional, and reflective in recounting Goldberg's life. His pacing is measured, and his vocal tone varied, conveying a contemplative approach. Fass employs slight accents to signal the native Spanish speakers in the work, such as Goldberg's soft-spoken Guatemalan mother. Spanning multiple decades and continents, this title is an epic exploration of a man and his family. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
