    Louis Charles ("Lucy") Lynch has spent all his 60 years in upstate Thomaston, New York, married to the same woman, Sarah, for 40 of them, their son now a grown man. Like his late, beloved father, Lucy is an optimist, though he's had plenty of reasons not to be: chief among them his mother, still indomitably alive.

    Victoria Wright says: "Wonderful"
    "Another great Russo read"
    Overall

    The narrator's pace takes a while to get used to, but ultimately helps to draw the pictures of Lucy's life, and becomes convincing as the voice of Lucy. Wonderfully written descriptive prose in true Russo style. I loved listening to this story! If you like Richard Russo, you'll like this book!

    Story

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Kept me on the treadmill!"
    Overall

    This was a great book - started a tiny bit slow, but well worth getting in to. I listened eagerly to all 18 hours of narration, not being able to wait to get into my car or get on the treadmill to listen. The narrator did an excellent job reading. The only complaint about the audio book is that there is music at times during the book (not at all frequently). The music is often strange and completely inappropriate to the events occurring in the book, and sometimes drown out the narrator. Small, minor thing. Get this book!
