Novelist John Galsworthy completed the FORSYTE SAGA shortly before his death in 1933. This novel was the last of that epic’s nine volumes, the culmination of a life’s work. If Galsworthy devoted himself to writing prose, David Case devoted himself to reading it out loud. He recorded hundreds of books, also working as Frederick Davidson, Edward Raleigh, James Nelson, and Ian McKay. Chosen as one of this magazine’s Golden Voices, Case threw himself passionately into every part, playing women so convincingly that I remember checking the audiobook box once to remind myself of the narrator’s gender. His refined but nimble English voice was stilled in 2005. He and Galsworthy can both look back across the River Styx with a shared sense that theirs was a job well done.
