William Dufris, winner of nine AudioFile Earphones Awards and a frequent Audie Award finalist, delivers an excellent performance of these 16 short stories. Written between 1982 and 2004, they cover war, love, death, devotion, and regret in many places--from London to Hawaii, Haifa to Florida. Some of the stories are more polished than others, some more believable. All are entertaining. Dufris offers first-rate accents and idiosyncratic speech patterns for the wide range of characters in combinations that help reveal personality and motivation. His readings are always careful and respectful of the material. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
