Jonathan Franzen stuns listeners with a sharp, relevant family saga, set in 1970s Chicago. Narrator David Pittu superbly transports the listener into the lives of the Hildebrandts, a family with many secrets. In typical Franzen fashion, the storytelling is the center of this work, with deep character studies and taut interwoven perspectives. Narration alternates between Russ, Marion, and their four children, Clem, Becky, Perry, and Judson. The story, which unravels mostly on a single day, will have listeners on the edge of their seats. This first novel in a slated trilogy called A Key to All Mythologies dazzles, and Pittu's narration keeps the tension strong. M.R.R.
