Earphones Award Winner

Children Ages 10+ • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

In Philip Pullman's conclusion to the Sally Lockhart Trilogy, Sally's reputation, business, and family are all threatened by a single mysterious accusation. To keep her daughter from the hands of the accuser, Sally goes into hiding in London's East End. Narrator Anton Lesser shows his mastery of voices by serving up all the accents and personalities of the East End. In one notable scene, an argument breaks out at a meeting of Socialists with Russian, Yiddish, and Polish backgrounds. Anton Lesser's rapid-fire switches from character to character sound like the work of a whole cast of narrators but are, in fact, the work of one absolutely stellar one. K.C.
