THE WILLIAM FAULKNER AUDIO COLLECTION

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Debra Winger, Keith Carradine, Arliss Howard

Classics • 5 hrs. • Anthology • © 1929

This collection of recordings begins with William Faulkner himself, reading his brilliant Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Faulkner speaks surprisingly briskly and softly, his light drawl setting the tone for the stories that follow. The all-star cast offers masterful performances of these moody tales. Classic stories such as "A Rose for Emily" and "Barn Burning" are especially engaging, and included in the five-CD set are excerpts from As I Lay Dying, A Fable, and Old Man. Hearing Faulkner's words read aloud so beautifully is extraordinary; even those intimidated by his lengthy sentences will enjoy this nearly flawless collection. L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
