THE BLIZZARD PARTY by Jack Livings, read by Rebecca Lowman

Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss how this audiobook absorbs the listener from its prologue to its end. Narrator Rebecca Lowman presents the many complex characters with just the right pace and carefully acts the various voices. Lowman particularly illuminates the character of Hazel Saltwater, an introspective, damaged seer whose life is indelibly marked by events that take place on the night of February 6 during the Blizzard of ‘78. Jack Livings’s novel has mystery, mayhem, and sci-fi, flashing forward and back as it revels in the lost world of late 1970s Manhattan. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
