This fine production renders homage to a master storyteller and to the narrator who, despite flaws, enlivens these grim tales. Many of Greene's characters play out childish malice in this series of stories set in postwar England. Jacobi is a magnificent projector of innuendo: suggestive, precise. His forte is dialogue. The narrative suffers, however, by theatrical emphasis; the power of Greene's dark humor is set off-balance by overacting. Although each voice is superbly rendered, a less dramatic tone is needed between speeches. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 92]
