Listeners just now discovering this subtle, penetrating author will take particular pleasure from Pearl Hewitt's sensitive and compelling narration of her most celebrated novel. Hewitt's virtuoso performance opens this novel to its full craft and artistry. Set in the period between WWI and WWII, Bowen's portrayal of an unsteady time and social order stretches across a broad array of characters of different ages and classes who call for the most accomplished and skilled interpretation. Hewitt's nuanced delivery is fascinating in its own right, and she is especially good at portraying differences in age, gender, and degree of sophistication--as well as the sense of desolation that comes with crushed illusions.
