Audible Editor Reviews

In Damascus, Richard Beard’s second novel, it is always November 1, 1993. A pair of lovers physically consummates their love on November 1, 1993, when they are 23-years old. They also pledge their love as 12-year-olds on that day. Also on that day in early winter, they are born. One on unchanging day, everything changes and remains the same. Performed with a fittingly sly zeal by British actor Julian Elfer, Damascus toggles its characters between faith and hopelessness, disappointment and ecstasy. The novel has been called "charming", "magical", and filled with "hope-giving profundity" by an array of praising critics. An added delight to this high-concept tale: Nearly every noun in the novel appeared in the Times of London newspaper on…what date? Yes: November 1, 1993.
