Description

A finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award, Jess Walter infuses his tightly plotted novels with a unique brand of mordant humor that has earned him a loyal and growing fan base. His sixth novel, Beautiful Ruins chronicles an unlikely romance that begins in 1962 along the Italian coast. The love affair wanes, only to be rekindled in Hollywood 50 years later. ''Why mince words? Beautiful Ruins is an absolute masterpiece.''- Richard Russo

Professional reviews

"As the sole voice for a veritable smorgasbord of characters, time periods and plotlines, Edoardo Ballerini works magic with this audio production. Whether capturing the heartache of an Italian innkeeper or the frustration of a Hollywood production assistant, Ballerini lends just the right inflection and tone to some outstanding dialogue from Walter. There doesn't seem to be an accent Ballerini can't pinpoint or a fictional person he can't animate. As the action shifts from the 1960s to the present day and back again, from actual plotted events to in-text novels or movie pitches, Ballerini does not once falter in his faithfulness to the overall story, one that wrestles with the essentials of dreams, love, and life. L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
