Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mark Hammer

Classics • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1940

Few readers of Faulkner's short story, "The Bear," know it in the original--the centerpiece of his collection, Go Down, Moses. This series of short stories follows the members of the McCaslin clan. Mark Hammer and Recorded Books bring that world to sometimes breathless reality. Hammer is the perfect reader, becoming the voice of the writer, as well as the voices of the individual characters--Uncle Buck and Uncle Buddy, Major de Spain, the boy and Uncle Ike McCaslin. Voices myriad and truthful, rich, resonan, and rolling portray Faulkner's world. Mark Hammer's slow, Southern cadences recreate that world better even than we ourselves could. P.E.F.
