THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE

by | Read by Geraldine McEwan

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1961

Geraldine McEwan tackles with aplomb Muriel Spark's rich tale of individuation among small-minded academics. Set in Edinburgh in the tempestuous political era of the 1930s, the story's universal theme of standing up against conventionality is still relevant and stirring nearly seventy years later. McEwan glides through Spark's text, adeptly altering her accents and intonations to suit each character. There is hardly a moment when it is not absolutely clear who is speaking. All this adds to the complete package of the audiobook, making it suitable for casual listeners and students of literature alike. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
