Julius Lester's writing is so strong that his words often seem to leap off the pages. His latest story, which focuses on the ancient characters of Cupid and Psyche, introduces a storyteller who has been married six times so is quite an authority on love. The deep-voiced Stephen Henderson steps easily into this role. The storyteller's many asides and figures of speech might be annoying in written form, but as voiced in Henderson's fluid reading, they jazz up the classic love story. The result is a memorable presentation of Greek gods, goddesses, and, of course, Psyche, the great beauty who must regain the love of Cupid after she breaks his trust.
