Anne Tyler takes on THE TAMING OF THE SHREW in this latest addition to the Hogarth Shakespeare series. Narrator Kirsten Potter makes Tyler's modern-day Kate likable and appropriately quick-witted and sharp-tongued. Kate runs the household, looks after her scientist father and younger sister, and works at a preschool, though she's not naturally predisposed to any of these things. Potter maintains the sardonic tone as, much to Kate's chagrin, Dr. Battista hatches a scheme to keep his lab assistant, whose visa is about to expire, in the country. Does it matter that the ensuing plot is predictable? Fans of KISS ME, KATE and 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU can welcome Tyler's retelling into the fold.
