Classics • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1927

No one captures Old New York society like Edith Wharton, and no one could perform this satirical audiobook better than Carrington MacDuffie. With a gift for tone and a wide array of character voices, MacDuffie brings us a complex story of family, status, and social flaws that seems, in many ways, wholly contemporary. The audiobook takes place in 1920s America, yet MacDuffie captures marital discord, family intrigue, and a general desire for ease and personal peace that most listeners can understand in the 21st century. Pacing and phrasing make the audiobook an engaging listen, and MacDuffie's strong voice is a powerful guide throughout the text. While the plot can stall occasionally, MacDuffie keeps the momentum going with her performance, leading listeners from scene to scene with verve.
