Description
When Christopher Isherwood's A Single Man was originally published in 1964, it shocked many by its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in midlife; by 2009, Tom Ford's film of the same name earned Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Colin Firth. It is the story of George Falconer, an Englishman and a professor living in suburban Southern California, who is adjusting to life on his own after the sudden death of his partner. Though he is an outsider in every way, George's internal reflections and interactions with others, over the course of a single day, reveal a man who loves being alive despite everyday injustices and loneliness. This unabridged audiobook is read by Simon Prebble, who has been named both an AudioFile magazine "Golden Voice" and a Publishers Weekly Narrator of the Year.

"A lyrical narrative that humanizes [the protagonist], and this is where Prebble's narration shines. His voice captures all of George's loneliness ... his frustration with his students ... and his sometimes-awkward interactions with friends, finally culminating in a wonderfully ambiguous ending."AudioFile
