Marcelo in the Real World

What a gift – a miracle of a book, given a brilliantly nuanced reading by Lincoln Hoppe. Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork deserves the slower pace that is often found when listening, rather than devoring the extraordinary text. I just finished the last CD, and am still too stunned to do anthing more than urge everyone to listen to this audiobook from Listening Library.
