One cannot imagine a better beginning for the publisher's series, Voice: A Treasury of Regional American Fiction. Jewett's literary portrait of eighteenth-century New England is based on the author's experiences during a summer in a Maine fishing village. It's as rich in detail as it is lacking in the action demanded by modern literary consumers. Tracy Lord imbues Jewett's narrative with a quiet passion which perfectly complements the written style. Despite her steady, seemingly soporific rendering, Lord keeps the listener tuned in to see what will happen next--though almost nothing does by twentieth-century standards. The presentation opens with a thumbnail sketch of Jewett and her work. R.B.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
