Description

New York Times best-selling author Stephen Harrigan lit up the publishing world with his Spur Award-winning The Gates of the Alamo. The remarkable follow-up to that acclaimed hit, Remember Ben Clayton further cements Harrigan's place as a premier voice in American fiction. Exiled to Texas with his grown daughter, sculptor Francis "Gil" Gilheaney is commissioned to create a statue for a man who recently lost his son in WWI. But as work on the statue progresses, secrets slowly reveal themselves and Gil's fragile family threads begin to fray.

Professional reviews

"We meet Ben Clayton briefly at the book's opening, in the bloody bombed-out trenches of WWI France. The scene then shifts to Texas, years later, where Ben's father wants to celebrate his dead son's life by commissioning a statue from nationally celebrated artist "Gil" Gilheaney. AudioFile Golden Voice George Guidall does a masterful job skipping between the novel's many time shifts and multiple characters. His voice resonates with strength, intensity, and humanity as each character's longings and long-buried secrets are revealed. Stephen Harrington's lyrical prose and detailed descriptions of Texas and Texas history, as well as his insights into people's motives, insecurities, and memories, provide Guidall with rich material, which he handles with intelligence. Harrigan's engrossing storytelling and Guidall's excellent narration offer worthwhile listening. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
