In this coda to McCarthy's bestselling novel THE PASSENGER, narrators Julia Whelan and Edoardo Ballerini play the parts of troubled mathematical genius Alicia Western and her therapist as she seeks treatment in a mental hospital named Stella Maris. As the story is told entirely through the transcripts of Alicia's treatment, Whelan brings an edge of madness and yearning to her performance of the paranoid schizophrenic. She expresses Alicia's philosophy and scientific theory in the shaky voice of a child in pain. Ballerini shines as her challenged therapist, using his soft but affecting voice to poke and prod until the truth is gently revealed. The story is told only in dialogue, words that challenge our perceptions of life and reality. R.O. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
