From firm-footed reality, Jan Marks's short stories all take quick but logical left turns into the surreal--making them ideal as read-alouds. Quickly hooked, the listener has not long to wait for the eerie resolution: each is a guaranteed chill down the back. Brigit Forsyth's briskly paced, no-nonsense reading is the perfect vehicle for conveying even the most flat-footed disbeliever beyond the boundaries of doubt: if she can recite this all so blithely, well... it just might be true after all. An excellent introduction to an author whose work is not widely available in the U.S. K.T.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
