Edgar and Lucy is a compelling literary masterpiece - a stunning examination of family love and betrayal.
Eight-year-old Edgar Fini remembers nothing of the accident people still whisper about. He only knows that his father is gone, his mother has a limp, and his grandmother believes in ghosts. When Edgar meets a man with his own tragic story, the boy begins a journey into a secret wilderness where nothing is clear - not even the line between the living and the dead. In order to save her son, Lucy has no choice but to confront the demons of her past.
Profound, shocking, and beautiful, Edgar and Lucy is a thrilling adventure and the unlikeliest of love stories.
This program is read by the author.
"Edgar and Lucy started with the character’s voices, and the rhythms of their particular ways of speaking... because I have this very distinct sense of the sound and rhythms... I was thrilled to have the opportunity to record the audiobook. Also, having grown up in New Jersey, I felt I could do justice to the world of the novel, and to the north Jersey accent." (Author Victor Lodato on why he chose to narrate his own novel)

Wonderful story almost ruined by narrator
This book is written very well with vivid characters that I loved. The story had exciting twists that I would not have guessed and kept me interested to the end. But, please please please Victor do not narrate your own book! I almost could not stand it. The halting speech with pauses mid sentence where pauses were not required were awful!

Caught me in a stranglehold
I was captured by this story from the first paragraph. The author's narration was spot on. There are moments, scenes, passages in this book that are profoundly beautiful. Others are deeply disturbing.
I found myself wondering if I could handle it; I was pulled into the story so deeply. My husband was happy when it was over and I came back to reality.
So, obviously, this is not a light read. It is a masterfully told story of family and human relationships and disfunction. Be forewarned- there are several graphic sex scenes.
If you are up for it I highly recommend that you dive in.
