REMEMBERING PEASANTS A Personal History of a Vanished World

by | Read by Philip Bird

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Patrick Joyce writes of the rapidly disappearing, or already vanished, European peasantry--its characteristics and culture--in this thoughtful, quietly analytic, elegiac audiobook. Narrator Philip Bird mirrors the production's best qualities, its sensitivity and intelligence, and lets its essential sadness emerge unobtrusively. His deft narration softens the frustrations of a text that can lose clarity by wandering among times and cultures. Especially in the reflective latter sections, his performance is so effortlessly attuned to the book's meaning, so subtly expressive, that it's easy to forget he's not the author. The effect is both engaging and moving. Note: Frequent references to photos in a pdf may not be helpful to listeners on the go. W.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
