This audiobook is proof positive that Jackson's best-known story, "The Lottery," is just the tip of the iceberg with regard to her talent. Placing her in the American gothic tradition, alongside Hawthorne and Poe, is high praise indeed. Narrator Bernadette Dunne has just the voice to capture the biography's tenor and subject, and she does a marvelous job creating an interesting audio experience. Dunne's voice is deep, slightly raspy, and serious enough to support the author's view that Jackson is an important literary voice that deserves to be heard. She also keeps the audiobook moving, using her range and excellent pacing to maintain our interest throughout this essential critical appraisal. Dunne stays away from character voices, relying on her measured tone and clear diction. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
