Product description

Review

Dion Graham brings Woodward's unorthodox tale to life in this inspired reading so realistic and enjoyable it makes listeners feel as if they're eavesdropping on the Toaks family of Johnsonville, Fla.
"Publishers Weekly" "

Just sit back and go for a joy ride with narrator Dion Graham in the driver's seat. . . . Savor the richness of his dialect-smart reading, the way his voice slides over speech rhythms, and his mini-portraits of the large cast of characters.
"AudioFile" " --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

In a town called Johnsonville on the northern Florida coast, a family called the Toaks have pushed every possible social boundary to its logical extreme for three generations. Feddy Toak, in his forties, is a medical school dropout, recovering alcohol and cocaine addict, and former handyman. His father, Teo, is one of Johnsonville's most prosperous bail bondsmen, slumlord, and idol to a diminishing old guard of hustlers and con men. Jesmond Toak, Feddy's son, haunted by his father's violent past and current failures, is turning toward the low road.
The entire city seethes with schemes and intrigue. Suicides and murders, infidelities and violence mount and converge with shattering precision on the eve of a hurricane, forcing the entire community to struggle with its demons and search for some chance at redemption.
Chronicling a slice of American landscape and culture with rare levels of depth and originality, "Cadillac Orpheus" defies categorization: it is by turns exuberant, terrifying, hilarious, brave, brazen, and, above all, wondrous." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
