DeBlieu has written a wonderful book of poetic description, scientific information, and conversation with hosts of people who in one way or the other have been shaped by wind. Suzanne Toren has done an equally inspired job in the narration, handling the text with elegant phrasing. The variety of voices and accumulation of information demand versatility, and the listener can only admire the muscular and musical virtuosity of Toren’s presentation. Our attention is sustained, allowing us to be caught up in the wind’s “boulevards and tendril streets” and its countless stories and adventures. We will never again be indifferent to the phenomenon that flows in and around the way we live. J.H.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
