Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Blythe Danner, Campbell Scott, Peter Gallagher, Parker Posey, Robert Sean Leonard et al.

Classics • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Seven classic short stories and two novellas, rich in the poetry and social history of their author, make up this anthology of Fitzgerald’s fiction. The actors are all excellent. Blythe Danner performs “Bernice Bobs Her Hair” with warmth, humor, and humanity. She gives a thrilling reading of a wonderfully satisfying coming-of-age story. Martha Plimpton brings “The Ice Palace” to rich life in its striking first sentence: “The sunlight dripped over the house like golden paint over an art jar.” Robert Sean Leonard captures the fun and fantasy of “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,” Campbell Scott the tragic drama of “May Day.” One finishes these stories, so redolent of the desperate hopes and decadence of their age, with a desire to return to the first tape and admire them again. G.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. 2002 Audie Award Finalist. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
