Aria, short for Ariadne, relates her the story of her life in flashbacks and vignettes, beginning with the death of her father and baby sister and proceeding to her life in western Atlanta and in college. She speaks of her relationships with family, men, and women, and how they affect her life. Michelle Blackmon reads in soft, lush tones, expressing Aria's passion for life and friendship. Blackmon plays with accents and stereotypes of African-Americans and whites in the South, adding spice and color to the narrative. Jones shapes this novel with sophisticated language and imagery that add dimension to the story. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
