Double Feature

Owen King, read by Holter Graham. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, digital download, 16 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-4423-6053-2
Sam Dolan is in the process of completing his very first film. It’s been a tumultuous experience, one made even harder by both his B-movie actor father, who thinks he’s far more famous than he truly is, and his family and friends, who nearly drive him insane. King’s novel is brought to life by inspired narration from Holter Graham, who dives headlong into the story and entrenches himself in its endless idiosyncrasies. Graham’s delivery is superb; his slight shifts in tone and style for each and every character are as well plotted and conceived as the book itself. Listeners will immediately get a sense of the realism Graham injects into his characters’ voices, making them all the more immediate and powerful. It is the casual tone with which Graham approaches the book’s seemingly complex web of identities that allows him to win over the audience easily and keep them engaged for the duration. A Scribner hardcover. (March)
