Naslund's idea for this story came from a passage in Herman Melville's classic MOBY-DICK. The result is the creation of one woman's world that is at once plausible and as fascinating as her "famous" husband's. Maryann Plunkett brings a spry energy to the production, playing up Una's youthful vibrancy. Her male voices sound a little as though she's reading the part of the Big Bad Wolf in a bedtime story, but this choice actually works well! It serves to reinforce the sense that Una herself is hauling up her own seafaring tale. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
