Description-
  • Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction

    On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, 27-year-old Mark Schluter flips his truck in a near-fatal accident. His older sister, Karin, returns to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when he emerges from a coma, Mark believes that this woman is really an impostor who looks just like his sister. Shattered, Karin contacts the cognitive neurologist Gerald Weber, who eagerly investigates. What he discovers in Mark slowly undermines even his own sense of being. Meanwhile, Mark, armed only with a note left by an anonymous witness, attempts to learn what happened the night of his inexplicable accident.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Bernadette Dunne delivers a complex performance, rich in subtlety and innuendo, in this winner of the 2006 National Book Award for fiction. Mark Schluter rolls his truck one winter night, off an absolutely straight road in Nebraska. Why? A cryptic note is found near his bed. Was there a witness to the accident? Dunne makes listeners ache as Mark attempts to recover after severe brain trauma. Mark thinks Karin, his sister, is an imposter, and Dunne makes Karin's confusion and frustration palpable. Dunne is as effective reflecting overwhelming strain as she is delivering images of endlessly flat landscapes or acres of noisy dancing cranes. Dunne reveals all of the sweetness and devastation in this beautifully written emotional puzzle of a novel. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
