During one of her blackouts, Charity McAdams Farnese walks into a downtown bar named Duo's and into the life of Joe Doyle, second-rate piano player and a man with a bum heart. Yancy the bartender knows that she's trouble, a rich girl with an itch, but Joe won't listen. All he knows is that Charity wants to love him. But Charity has a husband Oliver Alton Farnese. Oliver is a creature of habit and allows Charity her flings. But when this fling turns serious, Oliver has his own way of dealing with the situation.

I have been reading all my life with my eyeballs. I have now made the discovery and transition to audio reading and never ever even bother to open a print book. I am not sure why this question is asked. There is only one answer. Yes, this book and every book.
Let me reframe the question. What do the actors bring to a Broadway play that you would not experience if you just read the screenplay? Michael Kramer gave a performance based on a print book. He performed every word, every sentence and every syllable, acting several different parts, including a woman who was the primary character and he performed it flawlessly. Michael Kramer is the reason I bought the book. I know the kind of performance he delivers from other books I have heard him read. He did his same flawless work here.
Yes. I was riveted. Fortunately, it is a short book (written in 1958). I listened in every spare moment.
I recommend it. It is a fascinating read. Park Avenue Tramp.
