Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1964

Harry Kemelman fans consider FRIDAY THE RABBI SLEPT LATE to be the best of the late author’s Rabbi David Small murder mysteries. George Guidall’s narration defines the personality of the series superbly. While the novel is a whodunit, it is character-driven and also explains Judaism and aspects of synagogue politics. Guidall captures Rabbi Small’s brilliant, albeit low-key and harried, personality with ease. Guidall also excels in his ability to define the residents of Barnard’s Crossing. Whether it is Police Chief Lanigan, the Rabbi’s wife, Miriam, the feuding members of the rabbi’s congregation, or the bigots populating the town, Guidall provides each with a strong yet distinct personality, enriching a book whose religious undertones are surprisingly timeless.
