the saddest story i've listened to as an audiobook

Cyrus Duffleman finds himself in good company over at http://www.iambik.com/, sharing the homepage and a discount opportunity with arguably the greatest overlooked novel of the twentieth century, Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier.

Okay, so Ford may be the canonical genius, the great one I just mentioned as the most overlooked--yeah, but you know better to listen to what I say, and all that, but I would suggest that Cyrus's sloppy, sadsack routines can give Ford's narrator a run for his sadness. Unless you find his troubles to be amusing.
