Written By Alice McDermott Read By Alice McDermott. Alice McDermott at the 92nd Street Y. Alice McDermott "is a genius of quiet observation", said the Los Angeles Times. One of our finest novelists. Written By Alice McDermott Read By Roger Rosenblatt. Witty, compassionate, and wry, After This.
Martha Plimpton expertly handles McDermott’s habit of providing unhurried detail. As a reader, Plimpton is both energetic and precise-important qualities given McDermott’s intricate use of sentences that unspool their meaning phrase by phrase. Elegant and formal when McDermott’s writing is elegiac, dense, and echoing with internal rhymes, Plimpton is equally at ease creating voices inflected with New York accents, and she delivers perfect pacing when the writing turns quick with dialogue. Listeners will delight in this production. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2007 Audies Award.
