In intimate, whispery tones Elizondo relates the tragic tale of how a priceless pearl brings greed, treachery and loss to a poor Mexican pearl diver, his wife and their infant son. Although Elizando’s breathy, dramatic reading won’t be to everyone’s taste, younger readers, in particular, should respond to this interpretation. The narrator’s tone lends weight and urgency to the telling and underscores the mythic quality of Steinbeck’s classic novella. D.M.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
