Too Bright to Hear Too Loud to See

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Juliann Garey

Narrated By: Dan Butler

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: September 2013

Duration: 11 hours 9 minutes


In her tour de force first novel, Juliann Garey takes us inside the restless mind, ravaged heart, and anguished soul of Greyson Todd, a successful Hollywood studio executive who leaves his wife and young daughter and for a decade and travels the world giving free reign to the bipolar disorder he’s been forced to keep hidden for almost twenty years. The novel intricately weaves together three timelines: the story of Greyson’s travels (Rome, Israel, Santiago, Thailand, Uganda), the progressive unraveling of his own father seen through Greyson’s eyes as a child, and the intimacies and estrangements of his marriage. The entire narrative unfolds in the time it takes him to undergo twelve thirty-second electroshock treatments in a New York psychiatric ward. This is a literary page-turner of the first order, and a brilliant inside look at mental illness.

“Butler’s first-person reading takes listeners on a roller-coaster ride through Greyson’s emotions, from manic euphoria to near-suicidal depression…Butler’s tones initially seem matter-of-fact, but he slowly conveys Greyson’s meandering emotions and state of mind. Screenwriter Garey’s compelling debut novel translates superbly to audio.”—Booklist (starred audio review)
