Less audio theater than a recording of Simon Callow's celebrated one-man stage show, in which he impersonates Dickens reading from his own work. Callow plunges in with such energy that one wonders if he will last until the final curtain. Yet, he delightfully chews scenery nonstop to the bitter end. In addition to his showmanship, Callow contributes a fine understanding of his subject. A great introduction to Dickens. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
