AudioFile contributor Alan Minskoff tells host Jo Reed about Cormac McCarthy’s newest audiobook, The Passenger, performed superbly by MacLeod Andrews and Julia Whelan. It’s a braided tale of loss, hopeless love, and social collapse. Both narrators plumb the depths of the wounded siblings Bobby and Alicia Western, who are lost souls in this excursion into the dark, soul-depleting demimonde of Cormac McCarthy.
