Jerome exploits an innocuous boating excursion by three gentlemen to comment on the halcyon days of Victorian England. He contrasts the shallow, self-centered upper-classes with England's great power and prestige at the apex of her influence. Carmichael, the quintessential English gentleman, captures perfectly the delicious inanity of our intrepid heroes' conversations and the bemusement of the locals they meet along the way. He conveys beautifully Jerome's evocative, almost wistful, descriptions of Thames-side towns whose august historical pasts illustrate the glory that was Britain. This delightful performance crystallizes the author's humor and vision and is sure to enchant its audience. B.M.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 95]
