Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julian Fellowes

Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

When the social-climbing Edith Lavery marries the slightly boring Lord Charles Broughton, all hell breaks loose in 1990s’ London high society, particularly when Edith’s ensuing boredom pushes her into the arms of another man. Even better than Fellowes’s wicked wit, entertaining plot, and superb characters is his dead-on reading of his own work. In his care, the characters leap from the page in all their glory--airing the petty complaints and dirty laundry of the consummately snobbish. Fellowes employs subtle vocal changes for each character, nailing their snootiness and whining. Told in the first person by a likable narrator orbiting the fringes of British society, the story paints a silly but sharp and comic portrait of the upper class. The production ends with an interview of Fellowes--the perfect icing on this indulgent cake. H.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
