TALES OF THE CITY

by | Read by Barbara Rosenblat

Fiction • 9.75 hrs • Unabridged • © 1978

Once upon a time there was a land of enchantment. Well, maybe. It was San Francisco in the sixties. The players in Maupin's witty, woolly soap opera grope for enduring love and friendship in an atmosphere of sex, drugs and polyester. Barbara Rosenblat makes all the personalities as distinct as their sexual identities. Her equanimity encourages enjoyment of the characters, flaws and all. Occasionally she breaks the flow of conversation by extending pauses between speakers, but this is noticeable only because she has established the individuals so well already. In this audio Rosenblat pumps "April freshness" into platitudes. So listen-- and "Have a nice day!" D.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 95]
