9780316010856: A Hole in Texas: A Novel

With this rollicking novel-hailed equally for its satiric bite, its lightly borne scientific savvy, and its tender compassion for foible-prone humanity-one of America's preeminent storytellers returns to fiction. Guy Carpenter is a regular guy, a family man, an obscure NASA scientist, when he is jolted out of his quiet life and summoned to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. Through a turn of events as unlikely as it is inevitable, Guy finds himself compromised by scandal and romance, hounded by Hollywood, and agonizingly alone at the white-hot center of a firestorm ignited as three potent forces of American culture--politics, big science, and the media--spectacularly collide.

About the Author:

Herman Wouk earned his living as a scriptwriter for Fred Allen before serving in World War II. His career as a novelist spans nearly six decades and has brought him resounding international acclaim. He lives in Palm Springs, California.

From AudioFile:

Narrator Jonathan Davis turns mere pages into a living story by giving a distinct voice to each character. His females don't speak in falsetto, but vary from whining to seductive. A lady scientist, Wen Lu, has a horrible Chinese accent, but listeners will know her when she talks. The novel rises from the hole remaining after the 1993 Congress killed the expensive nuclear collider being built in Texas to find a nuclear particle. When the Chinese discover the particle first, military minds and the American press awaken in panic. Davis's performance adds realism to a story in which hormonal urges, jealousy, and national pride energize the never-ending race to have the world's biggest bomb.
