The Testament of Mary

Colm Tóibín, read by Meryl Streep. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, two CDs, 3 hrs., $14.99 ISBN 978-1-4423-6347-2
Meryl Streep takes on one of her biggest roles to date, voicing the mother of Jesus Christ in this audio edition of Tóibín’s novel. As Mary, Streep’s voice reflects the tragedy that befell Jesus at the hands of the Romans. Her tone is one of regret and loss, but her performance also captures Mary’s loyalty, steadfastness, and dedication. Though Mary wants nothing to do with the disciples who pen Christ’s story, she cannot help but reminisce about the past. Streep is the perfect choice to bring Mary to life, and the result is an engaging listening experience. A Scribner hardcover. (Sept.)
