Fresh from his success with BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM, McPherson presents seven essays and lectures that re-examine President Lincoln. Wolfram Kandinsky reads these tightly reasoned, though sometimes overlapping, essays with precision and care. His even pacing, precise diction and clarity of tone have the feel of a good college lecturer and seem the ideal vehicle for McPherson's intricate message. As McPherson unravels the essentially conservative President and transforms him before our eyes into a radical revolutionary, Kandinsky's slow, almost fluid voice seems to render the paradox luminous. This collection demands concentration but will reward the attentive ear with a new appreciation of Lincoln. P.E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 92]
