Leaving the Atocha Station

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ben Lerner

Narrated By: Ben Lerner

Date: September 2011

Duration: 5 hours 41 minutes

Summary:

Adam Gordon is a brilliant, if highly unreliable, young American poet on a prestigious fellowship in Madrid, struggling to establish his sense of self and his relationship to art. Instead of following the dictates of his fellowship, Adam's 'research' becomes a meditation on the possibility of the genuine in the arts and beyond: are his relationships with the people he meets in Spain as fraudulent as he fears his poems are? Is poetry an essential art form, or merely a screen for the reader's projections? A witness to the 2004 Madrid train bombings and their aftermath, does he participate in historic events or merely watch them pass him by?

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    I loved the story, although I wish the voice was just a tad more dynamic
