Solon Timothy Woodward, Author, Dion Graham, Read by , read by Dion Graham. HighBridge Audio $32.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-59887-584-3

Dion Graham brings Woodward's unorthodox tale to life in this inspired reading so realistic and enjoyable it makes listeners feel as if they're eavesdropping on the Toaks family of Johnsonville, Fla. Graham masters Southern dialect with a profound narrative tone and offers slight variations with each character, creating a variety of believable and original personalities. Each disc opens with a brief, banjo riff that helps create an atmosphere rife with conflict and emotion. Graham is brilliant: a stunning performance so simple yet incredibly detailed. Simultaneous release with the Free Press hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 19, 2007). (Feb.)
