AFTER THIS by Alice McDermott, read by Martha Plimpton
McDermott’s story of a postwar middle-class family that unfurls over decades is full of the stuff of everyday life. Martha Plimpton expertly handles McDermott’s habit of providing unhurried detail. As a reader, Plimpton is both energetic and precise, and she delivers perfect pacing when the writing turns quick with dialogue.
