Caroline ("Caro") Venable's life has all of the appearance of Southern gentility: She has a beautiful home, fashionable friends and attends frequent parties at the country club. Siddons's verbal artistry carries us beneath that surface, and we become witnesses to a powerful drama that threatens to shatter this near-perfect world. Monk's subtle accents and vocal inflections range from Caro's soft Southern drawl to gentle Gullah patois and musical Hispanic English. Undiminished by abridgment and enhanced by haunting music, a truly compelling story is told. B.L.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
