The Irish and the Jews have made contributions to world literature far beyond proportion to their numbers. The former seem born poets, the latter born storytellers. This magnificent anthology, the second from Santa Monica public radio station KCRW, exemplifies characteristic Jewish irony, humor, humanism and broad thematic concern that transcends ethnic particularism. Anyone who enjoys good writing, cosmic inquiry and fine performance will enjoy this program. A number of stars do a bang-up job reading tales culled mostly from twentieth-century American and Eastern European writers. Their elan, as well as their surprising expertise (talent and technique are not necessarily factors in show biz celebrity), reflect the vigor of the writing. Klezmer music and background info delivered with dignity by Leonard Nimoy bridge the selections. Y.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
