9781587672323: Pork Pie Hat

"Sometimes people just disappeared. They'd be gone. All kinds of stuff used to happen, stuff you wouldn't even believe in now."

The jazz legend known as Pork Pie Hat has never told anyone about the horrible event he witnessed as a child in the forbidden woods known as The Backs, even though the events of that Halloween night have haunted him ever since. But Hat is sick now, nearing the end of a long slide through the depths of alcoholism and depression, and the time has come for the truth to be known about what he saw... and what he did.

From AudioFile:

A New York City college student stumbles onto the fact that one of his favorite blues saxophonists still lives. Better yet, he's playing a two-week engagement nearby. When the legend grants a rare interview, the student is unprepared for the horrifying story about to unfold. Peter Marinker effortlessly jumps from struggling student to old, alcoholic, unschooled African-American man in narrating this tale within a tale. The two points of view are so distinct as to sound entirely like two performers. Marinker's tone and pacing are subdued, in keeping with the solemnity of the story, and his lack of pyrotechnics provides an explosive finishing touch to the performance.
