These stories, set before and after WWII, give a real feel for the range of Spark's fiction. They include ghost stories, love stories and politics, all shot through with the author's skeptical view of human worth. Here are jealous lovers, brutish colonials, spoiled middle-class women, curious children and, frequently, the outsider, the young woman who observes and holds her own counsel, the writer's alter ego. In a crisp and delightful Scots accent, Bron complements each story with a skillful and witty reading. She creates individual characters wonderfully and offers a very well-paced and sophisticated interpretation, a good match for Spark's asperity. E.J.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
