About the Author:

William Dufris have extensive experience on stage and screen.

From AudioFile:

Palmer's debut novel creates a world of bizarre inventions and complicated relationships. Narrator William Dufris's wondrous acting ability is tested on almost each page as the story is full of flashbacks and flash-forwards. Genius inventor Prospero Taligent and his lovely daughter, Miranda, entrance young Harold Winslow as he pursues a career as a storyteller. Imprisoned aboard the giant zeppelin "Chrysalis," powered by a perpetual-motion machine, Harold tells his story. Dufris narrates with a tinge of melancholy in his voice as characters react to the phantasmagoric world created by the mad inventor. This imaginative tale of love is both heartbreaking and head-twisting. Dufris provides a sure and steady delivery. R.O. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
