"When suddenly, on an ordinary Wednesday, it seemed to Barney that the world tilted and ran downhill in all directions, he knew he was about to be haunted again." So begins Mahy's classic story of an eight-year-old boy's struggle between family history and individual destiny. Richard Mitchley's supple voice and lively pacing combine to create a middle ground--neither wholly real nor entirely imaginary--where Mahy's characters weave their subtly shifting patterns of relationships imperceptibly changed by death and birth. This story and voice linger in the mind long after the tape is over. K.T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
