At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in TESTIMONY a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

About the Author:

Anita Shreve is the critically acclaimed author of fourteen novels, including Body Surfing, The Pilot's Wife, which was a selection of Oprah's Book Club, and The Weight of Water, which was a finalist for England's Orange Prize. She lives in Massachusetts.

From AudioFile:

A shocking video of amateur porn plunges a prep school into turmoil, leaving faculty, families, and the tape's student stars struggling to come to grips with its creation and aftermath. A full cast presents each chapter from the point of view of one person involved in the events of that night, either directly or by association. Every voice actor turns in a stellar performance, with exactly the right vocal tones for his or her age and perspective. A hotshot ball player betrays the barest hint of vulnerability, while his socialite mother struggles to balance remorse and resourcefulness. A local farmer fights crushing grief, while his wife gives in to guilt. A headmaster with his head in the clouds weaves all the points of view together into a story haunted by hindsight, insight, and sadness. R.L.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
