"Compelling and disturbing, RESERVATION ROAD is a chronicle of grief and reflection as the lives of two families are shattered by the death of a 10-year-old boy, killed in a hit-and-run accident. The boy's parents, Grace and Ethan, and his young sister, Emma, struggle with terrible guilt. No less affected is the driver who left the scene, Dwight, a self-deluded divorced father with a quick, violent temper. In a series of individual remembrances and interior monologues, Cassandra Campbell, Robertson Dean, and Arthur Morey give controlled performances that make the disintegration of lives all the more powerful by their restraint. Each actor delivers an audio gem, performing Schwartz's clean, clear prose in a manner that feels like poetry--lyrical, absorbing, and completely honest. S.J.H.
