Classics • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1865

Nicholas Boulton's versatile voice is on fine display in this production of several works by the Russian author Nikolai Leskov. Although he is not as well known as Dostoevsky or Tolstoy, Leskov is a major literary figure who was Chekhov's favorite author. These stories reveal human nature in all of its splendor and sordidness. The title work is Leskov's best known work and was even the basis for an opera by Shostakovich. Over the years Boulton has distinguished himself with his narrations of Russian literature. He never disappoints. His pacing, enunciation, and inflection are outstanding. He gives subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, voices to various characters and makes any production he performs a delight. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
