Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Theodore Bikel, Harlan Ellison, Elliot Gould, John Rubinstein, Jerry Zaks

Literary Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Anthology • © 1959

Roth's virtuosity is magnificently dramatized with five excellent and quite different reading voices, each matched to the text. Do you remember the size of a Patimkin sink? Then Brenda will come at you like a lover out of your own and cherished past. If not, then John Rubinstein's young voice will be a spectacular treat. Rubinstein also performs "Epstein," a story that might have been written by Irwin Shaw, if Shaw were ever that funny. Theodore Bikel gives a heavily accented rendition of "Eli, The Fanatic." This might have been by Isaac Bashevis Singer, if Singer were ever that direct. When Roth is good, he is very very good. He's the best. As is this package. B.H.C.
