This wonderful conclusion to the series Tales of the City takes listeners where they long to be—deep in the company of magical Mrs. Madrigal—joining her in a joint, or not—as she considers life’s whimsical turns. Kate Mulgrew portrays Anna with a delicious growl, which lightens or quickens as the action and other characters demand. And much is demanded, for the plot encompasses sex, love, and oddity in the Nevada desert, adventures in a wheezing RV, and Mrs. Madrigal’s boyhood—yes, boyhood—in her mother’s brothel. Yet Mulgrew voices men and women with equal fluidity and personifies the book’s many emotions without ever overplaying. The comedy and drama are all to Mrs. Madrigal in this perfect ending to an iconic series. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
