THE SIBYL offers an opportunity to hear the work of a Nobel Prize-winning author (1951) whose work is not particularly well known in English. An old woman who lives in the mountains near Delphi is visited by the legendary Wandering Jew, who was cursed with immortality for refusing to let Jesus rest on his way to being crucified. The recording uses its three narrators to good effect, with the majority of the narration given over to the woman's own rambling tale. While all three narrators handle their roles well, the tale is tiresome, the narration unable to transcend the material. D.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
