Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Respected writer Tobias Wolff has selected 21 of his favorite short stories and added 10 new ones. Wolff's impeccable, precise style is well served by narrator Anthony Heald, who delivers these works not as if he’s reading but as if he’s actually "telling" stories. His tone, his voices, and his rhythm all combine to make these works come alive. While many of Wolff's stories have endings that are, well, less than satisfying, Heald makes the listening worthwhile, turning each one into a unique creation. This is a delightful example of how a narrator can enhance the text he reads. K.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
