Miriam Margolyes is one of the finest narrators in the business today. She has a particular flair for Dickens, which she proved on London and American stages in her witty, informed and brilliantly acted monologue, DICKENS'S WOMEN. She proves it again in the recording of OLIVER TWIST one of the author's most popular evergreens, about the little orphan who could.Margolyes skillfully plays in a tête-à-tête with a mike.She has Dickens's verbal/visual personality down pat and breathes memorable, credible life into each of his many caricatures. One sees the story rather than hears it. She not only communicates the Dickensian world, but convinces us that it is a real world, full of vivid, breathing souls whom we can't help loving, hating, admiring and especially fretting over. Y.R.
