Storyteller Donald Davis charms listeners with offbeat tales of cat owners. With a voice as rich as the North Carolina culture he depicts, Davis demonstrates that eccentricity is memorable. Picture Irma, his mother-in-law, showering with ducklings or frugal Miss Morton paying the vet three dollars to neuter over 30 cats. Davis treats listeners like longtime acquaintances with his natural language and casual style. His live storytelling has some advantages over this audio recording. He sounds more rehearsed on audiothan he does in person. Despite these challenges, the larger-than-life characters emerge vividly through detailed narration. Warmly human, the stories present life's universality in Davis's rolling Southern accent. C.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
