Laurel Lefkow gives an elegantly understated narration of Dreiser's timeless novel of ambition, pride, and social class. Lefkow's pacing adeptly mirrors Carrie's tentative exploration of city life. Dreiser's exquisitely rendered details of every strata of social class will resonate with the economic realities of today's world. Lefkow's subtle shifts in vocal inflection and pitch give full voice to the characters, who range from Carrie's solemn sister, Minnie, and the genial but vain Charles Drouet to the sophisticated but ultimately dejected George Hurstwood and the fun-loving showgirl, Lola. At the close of this panoramic novel, the listener may ponder how sympathetic a character Carrie has become. A story to be savored and treasured.
