Ten well-crafted short stories by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford all deal with infidelities of one kind or another. Though many of the stories have humorous moments, the overall atmosphere is dark. Richard Ford is a better writer than he is a reader. His breathing is audible throughout the tapes, and at times it produces a labored delivery that interferes with pacing and emphasis. In addition, his voice sometimes sounds tired. It's a perfectly pleasant voice, so it's unfortunate that he wasn't better served by his producer. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
