Alistair Horne, an English historian who spent part of WWII at a prep school in the Northeast, returns to the States a decade after the War. Traveling from coast to coast, he presents some interesting and insightful views on practically every aspect of life in the U.S., views that are by no means negative. Bill Kelsey, who also performed the author's VERDUN, has a distinctive way of modulating his voice. It is deep and resonant, with a certain rhythm that may throw listeners off at first. However, once one becomes accustomed to his voice, one realizes that his performance is a fine complement to Horne's wordcraft. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
