    When struggling riverboat captain Abner Marsh receives an offer of partnership from a wealthy aristocrat, he suspects something’s amiss. But when he meets the hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York, he is certain. For York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet. Nor does he care that he won’t earn back his investment in a decade. York has his own reasons for wanting to traverse the powerful Mississippi. And they are to be none of Marsh’s concern - no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious his actions may prove.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fevre Dream to be better than the print version?

    Performance and print were equally good, but I could never make the characters as alive and individual, and "beautiful" as Ron Donachie did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fevre Dream?

    Julian's end is so well deserved...and beautifully performed..."whatever shall we do"!


    Have you listened to any of Ron Donachie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding out about Joshua's child, and his hopes and dreams for his people.


    Any additional comments?

    You can't stop listening. Listened well into the night even though I knew what was to come!
