Description

"Listeners will have no trouble discerning among curmudgeonly Marty, cynical Ted, and good-natured grief counselor Mariana. Nor will they lose interest in the character-driven tale while anticipating each witticism and relishing Duchovny's droll delivery. A highly recommended and essential addition to audio collections." — Booklist

From beloved actor and cultural icon David Duchovny comes a surreal and hilarious new audiobook

Ted Fullilove, aka Mr. Peanut, is not like other Ivy League grads. He shares an apartment with Goldberg, his beloved battery-operated fish, sleeps on a bed littered with yellow legal pads penned with what he hopes will be the next great American novel, and spends the waning malaise-filled days of the Carter administration at Yankee Stadium, waxing poetic while slinging peanuts to pay the rent.

When Ted hears the news that his estranged father, Marty, is dying of lung cancer, he immediately moves back into his childhood home, where a whirlwind of revelations ensues. The browbeating absentee father of his youth is living to make up for lost time, but his health dips drastically whenever his beloved Red Sox lose. And so, with help from a crew of neighborhood old-timers and the lovely Mariana—Marty's Nuyorican grief counselor—Ted orchestrates the illusion of a Sox winning streak, enabling Marty and the Red Sox to reverse the Curse of the Bambino and cruise their way to World Series victory. Well, sort of.

David Duchovny's richly drawn Bucky F*cking Dent is a story of the bond between fathers and sons, Yankee fans and the Fenway faithful, and grapples with the urgent need to find our story in an age of irony and artifice. Culminating in that fateful moment in October of '78 when the meek Bucky Dent hit his way into baseball history with the unlikeliest of home runs, this tragicomic audiobook demonstrates that life truly belongs to the losers—that the long shots are the ones worth betting on.

Bucky F*cking Dent is a singular tale that brims with the hilarity, poignancy, and profound solitude of modern life.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: There's only one subject that the underachieving Ted Lord Fenway Fullilove has at all in common with his brusque, overbearing, dying father, and that's baseball--more specifically the Boston Red Sox and their epic 1978 American League pennant race against the dastardly New York Yankees. David Duchovny ("The X-Files," "Californication") employs his unique and highly recognizable voice to great advantage in narrating his second novel, the title of which refers to the Yankees' dastardly shortstop. As Ted, Duchovny sounds big-guy tough and modern-guy cynical. But listeners will discover that, like Duchovny and Ted, most all of us are suckers for baseball, a bag of peanuts, and second chances. We wouldn't want it any other way. B.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
