Sharon Gless rises to the challenge as narrator of this collection of short fiction, which features startlingly diverse settings and characters. She voices the strength of the mountain people in the stories set in Appalachia and catches the spirit of adolescent angst in two stories of young love. She also captures the desperation of a paroled murderer who wants only to live a quiet life who is pursued by a heedless reporter, and is hilarious in a story of how a group of nursing home residents come to own their own mummy. This collection is delightfully surprising, offering something different in every story and showcasing Gless's versatility. M.A.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
