Humor • 1 hr. • • © 1997

Donald Davis presents a new story that adds to his repertoire of small-town North Carolina tales, which includes LISTENING FOR THE CRACK OF DAWN and PARTY PEOPLE. Embellishing the colorful characters he recalls or creates from his childhood, Davis draws on episodes and events involving family, school buddies and hometown folks. With immense charm and a wry wit, he captures the humor of rural boyhood. He sets the scene with a few well-chosen descriptions and then lets events evolve. Davis gives listeners a joyous sense of anticipation. If Miss Winnie is your first encounter with Davis, it certainly not be your last. The story delights but also tilts the conventional view of childhood fears and injustices. Most everyone has dreaded a doctor's shot, but few ever get to play out the hilarious episode as Davis does in Miss Winnie. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
