SELECTED SHORTS: AMERICAN CLASSICS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christine Stockard Channing, David Stathairn, Freda Foh Shen, et al.

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Anthology • © 2010

Balancing easy wit, an astonishing breadth of style and language, and just a hint of honest nostalgia, Symphony Space has put together yet another stellar collection celebrating the best in American literature. Each of these eight short stories is matched with an outstanding narration, and each of these wonderful performances is recorded in front of an appreciative live audience. Hearing the collective hush of the crowd at the end of Christine Baranski's reading of Joyce Carol Oates's eerie "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?", Jerry Stiller's best borscht-belt timing on John Sayles's "At the Anarchists' Convention," and Carmen de Lavallade's wonderful little laugh as she concludes Alice Walker's "Everyday Use" creates moments to be savored. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2011 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
