Great listen, poor producer.

The story and narrator were very good and held me within the story. This is the second time listening and whilst it was just as enjoyable, the editing and especially the production were way off. Every few chapters, it was clear there had been a break where the renewal was sharp and loud or low and dim. This put me a wee bit out of any comfort i felt with the storytelling for a few moments.

When is the Movie Coming out

I am really hoping that this book will become a film; the characters are so rich and alive. The premise is wonderfully intriguing, and one might think that it is about race, and being gay but it is not it is just about people making the wrong choices in life and then trying to make them work. The character of Harlan is fascinating and complex, it starts with his adolescence and goes to the point of his becoming a young father trying to maintain a relationship with his wife and family and his male lover, whom he has been in love with, since his first year at the university. He is black which is only important to the plot because he has managed to mainstream his life style into upper middle class America of the 1950's and 60's and he afraid the being gay will be his downfall. The pressures of his family, who has also reached a certain standard of living due to some mysterious business owned by his mother and aunt from which they have both retired, weigh heavily on him and pressure him to get married and have kids. The character of Aunt Lillian is fantastic, and should be play by Angelina Jolie in the film, I see Hali Berry as her freewheeling fun loving niece and Harlan's mother. Living in Daddy's Closet is probably the best argument for allowing marriage that is on the market today for its message is 'why can't we let people be happy?' Good Question! I can't wait for Volume II; How did Aunt Lillian get so rich? Please let us know Michael Lee Tucker. The last thing this is the first audio book that has song incorporated in the book as part of the plot it's a nice plus. The song 'Let Love Abide' is really beautiful, great and has so much meaning.
