Free Audiobook:A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman

A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: David Grossman   Narrator: Joe Barrett   Language: English    Category: Fiction  

In a little dive in a small Israeli city, Dov Greenstein, a comedian a bit past his prime, is doing a night of stand-up. In the audience is a district court justice, Avishai Lazar, whom Dov knew as a boy, along with a few others who remember Dov as the awkward, scrawny kid who walked on his hands to confound the neighborhood bullies. Gradually, teetering between hilarity and hysteria, Dov’s patter becomes a kind of memoir, taking us back into the terrors of his childhood – his beautiful flower of a mother, a Holocaust survivor in need of constant monitoring; his punishing father, a striver who had little understanding of his creative son. Finally, recalling his week at a military camp for youth – where Lazar witnessed what became the central event of Dov’s childhood – Dov describes the indescribable while Lazar wrestles with his own part in the comedian’s story of loss and survival. A beautiful performance by Grossman (jokes in questionable taste included).

Audible’s users are totally in love with the service!

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
