National Book Award-winning author Pete Dexter excels at writing eccentric characters and comical, yet touching, prose. In Spooner, Dexter weaves the tale of Warren Spooner, a troubled boy whose father dies shortly after he's born. When his mother marries Calmer Ottosson, a decorated Navy officer fallen from grace, Warren is saved by Calmer's inexhaustible patience. As Warren grows up, the two men forge a bond that will carry them both through the hard times ahead.

Professional reviews

"Pete Dexter is lucky to have the fine Tom Stechschulte reading his newest book, a Mark Twain-esque tale of the haphazard lives of two men. Stechschulte's voice, as clear and plain and broad as the prairie, beautifully captures the laconic humor that permeates the intertwined stories of Warren Spooner and his stepfather, Calmer Ottosson. Stechschulte doesn't people the audio with lots of different voices; instead he offers just enough variation to keep conversations understandable and focuses on the melody of Dexter's narrative. This is a reading that makes you want to kick off your shoes, lean your chair back to the tipping point, and listen awhile. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
