Tisoy Audible Audiobook – Original recording

From Bernice L. McFadden, one of the most cherished voices in contemporary fiction comes a dramatic family saga spanning two generations of one mixed-race family during the second half of the 20th century.

When we meet Joseph Patrick, he’s in the midst of a classic midlife crisis. After dropping an obscene amount of money on a luxury watch — and leaving his wallet at the store — Joseph hops into a rented Porsche and takes off across the desert. He no sooner hits the open road than a coyote darts in front of the speeding car, wrecking it and leaving Joseph stranded in the heat, with no cell phone service — and no ID. The sight of the dying coyote sparks a memory that transports Joseph back to his childhood in rural Pennsylvania, shifting the story to the not-so-distant past, where the young Patrick family must navigate small-town attitudes about race and interracial marriage all while trying to rise into the American middle class.

Vividly told and by turns profoundly moving and darkly funny, Tisoy is an Audible Original Story about race, family, identity, and ambition. With a pitch-perfect performance from Ron Domingo (Law and Order: SVU), Tisoy examines the unwritten rules of the American Dream, the ones we’re forced to follow and the ones we must break.
