For those who have never read Katherine Anne Porter, and those who haven't read her in 50 years, this audiobook of three of her finest stories is an opportunity long missed. Until now, her only fiction on audio has been SHIP OF FOOLS, her big book of the 1960s, which overshadowed her earlier, far better, short fiction. Chelsea Stephens gives this matchless storyteller full due in her precise, subtly nuanced performance. These three short novels, among the best in American literature, live as vibrantly here as they did 80 years ago. Porter's famous story of the 1918 flu pandemic gives the collection its title, and that somber image links the very different "Old Morality" and "Noon Wine," whose counterpoint melodies and sharp humor are so expressively captured here.
