Synopsis:
Che is a precocious young boy raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother. Yearning for his famous outlaw parents--radical 1960s activists who are now among the FBI s most wanted he's denied all access to television and the news. But he takes hope from his long-haired teenage neighbor, who predicts, "They will come for you, man. They'll break you out of here."

And one afternoon, the prediction appears to come true. Soon Che, too, is an outlaw, fleeing with the woman into the subway and pitched into a journey that leads them to a hippie commune in the jungles of tropical Australia. Here, Che slowly, bravely confronts his life, learning that nothing is what it seems.


Review:
Peter Carey's touching story of an unassuming lad named Che who longs to hear the dramatic accounts of his outlaw parents' lives is read in a subtle, casual, and utterly arousing performance by narrator Stefan Rudnicki. With little in the way of dramatization for the well-rounded characters, Rudnicki's tone is so heartfelt and brutally honest as to make this tale fully believable despite its slightly larger-than-life plot. Rudnicki's straightforward reading of a far from ordinary novel is picture-perfect from start to finish. He dives headfirst into the story and relates it earnestly to his captivated audience.
