Tristan Morris inhabits the youthful protagonist of Francine Prose’s fine audiobook, The Vixen. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss this understated performance that shows Morris inhabiting the psyche of the youthful protagonist, set in the anti-communist hysteria of the 1950s. The deliberate cadence and earnest style add to the revelation of the mystery at the center of this complex, textured, and richly detailed novel. It adds up to a grand listening experience.
