Zora Neale Hurston's THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD is taught in English classes across the country. This collection of stories would enrich and enhance any study of Hurston's work. They can also be listened to for their own pure joy. Renee Joshua-Porter has just the right smooth, flowing voice to do justice to these stories. Her dialogue sings and, indeed, when she actually does sing briefly, listeners experience an additional treat. In "The Conscience of the Court," a stirring story of an African-American woman falsely accused, Joshua-Porter edifies the rambling story Hurston writes so well. "Muttsy" gives listeners an insightful portrait of 1930's Harlem. This collection is a special treat. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
