Humor • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

Reiner narrates his novel with warmth and nostalgia. He's the natural guide as he shares his early life as an aspiring actor. His descriptions of his job with a touring Shakespearean repertoire company draw a delightful picture of simpler times in American theater. His humor is kind and self-deprecating, urging us to join in and laugh at his reminiscences. It would be hard for another narrator to project this. One might even think the program to be an extended skit, but it doesn't quite move fast enough, and Reiner is occasionally slowed by getting out the exact text. An older audience is likely to enjoy this program, but younger listeners will also get a glimpse of earlier times. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
