The Dons: You Can Never Escape Family | [Archimede Fusillo]

The Dons: You Can Never Escape Family

Paul is trying to escape. He's trying to escape from an Italian heritage that just doesn't seem to have any relevance for him anymore, and he's trying to escape from his nonno. They come from two different worlds, he and his grandfather, and Paul is more interested in his own world, his friends, the girls, the go-carts, than Nonno's strange and embarrassing behavior.

Audible Editor Reviews

This is a funny and poignant listen about a teenage boy named Paul who is dealing with more than his fair share of challenges: His father is dead, and he has to share a room with a grandfather slowly slipping into dementia. His grandfather is also stuck in old Italian ways that embarrass Paul, who's more interested in girls and sports than hearing about the old country. But Paul soon learns that his grandfather is even more valuable than he realizes. Performer Dino Marnika's gravelly baritone is smooth and pronounces the Italian words with ease, while an introduction by Archimede Fusillo adds a welcoming warmth.

Publisher's Summary

Paul is trying to escape. He's trying to escape from an Italian heritage that just doesn't seem to have any relevance for him anymore, and he's trying to escape from his nonno. They come from two different worlds, he and his grandfather, and Paul is more interested in his own world, his friends, the girls, the go-carts, than Nonno's strange and embarrassing behavior. Nonno is more than just a silly old man getting in the way of Paul's lifestyle, though. Nonno has more stories to tell than Paul can even begin to imagine. But there is one big problem: Nonno is losing his mind.

What the Critics Say

"The narrator and author are well matched as story and characterization come together flawlessly. Unexpected plot twists and down under humor make this audiobook very entertaining." (AudioFile)
