It Happened in Boston? by Russell H. Greenan
Robert Fass, Narrator

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Originally published in 1968 to critical acclaim, Russell H. Greenan’s brilliant, audacious mystery novel 'It Happened in Boston?' quickly became an underground sensation and has emerged over forty years later as a genuine cult classic. In this breathtakingly imaginative book—now appearing in audio for the first time—we enter the mind of an unnamed artist of prodigious talent and intelligence who is determined to correct the world’s wrongs via a direct confrontation with the Almighty, no matter what the consequences. A spellbinding tale told by a memorably unreliable narrator, It Happened in Boston? places you inside a vivid world that brilliantly and surprisingly interweaves art, genius, love, madness, betrayal, God … and murder. In 2003 IHIB? was reprinted by the Modern Library with a new introduction by celebrated writer Jonathan Lethem and an afterword by the author, both included in this audio version.
Reviews
Veteran narrator Fass brings his best to his reading of this appealingly quirky first novel, which 40 years after its first publication has gained cult classic status. The story unfolds through the voice of an unnamed narrator, a painter of exceptional talent who teeters on the edge of insanity. He is determined to find God and, holding the deity accountable for all the evil in the world, kill him. The artist’s journey toward his goal is a surreal collective of travels through time, angel apparitions, art forgery, existential musings, and murder. Fass manages to navigate his way through this convoluted but captivating tale with ease. He gives the anonymous artist a soft, respectable voice that pulls the listener gently into his increasingly irrational world. His rendering of the eccentric collection of secondary characters borders on caricature, but works well in the shifting reality the author has created. A Modern Library paperback. (BookLife)
