CRITICS, MONSTERS, FANATICS, AND OTHER LITERARY ESSAYS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Donna Postel

Contemporary Culture • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

This audiobook will open doors. For listeners familiar with Cynthia Ozick’s brilliant criticism, these essays affirm that status. For those unfamiliar with Ozick’s criticism, this audiobook serves as an excellent introduction. Although narrator Donna Postel doesn’t sound like Ozick, whose actual voice is as memorable as her writing, Postel’s performance brings out the author’s literary voice with the right mix of wit, inflection, and hyperbole. In doing so, Postel’s varied yet consistently low-key delivery complements the wide range of topics the book covers, including Ozick’s perspectives on a variety of authors such as Saul Bellow, Martin Amis, and Franz Kafka.
