Those who have been discouraged from reading Faulkner will find Wendell Berry's narration of three of Faulkner's best stories a delightful and effective way to approach this difficult writer. The stories are "Spotted Horses," "The Old People," and "Shingles for the Lord." Kentuckian Berry, himself an essayist and novelist of great reputation, conveys the rhythms, tones and idiosyncrasies of mid-Southern speech with accuracy and sensitivity. Berry's obvious love of these stories and his belief in the need to hear Faulkner read aloud are disclosed by Berry himself in a beautifully stated afterword. The production values are excellent, as well. Audio Literature is to be congratulated for following the highest standards in bringing performance literature to the public. P.W.
