The first profile is by Lillian Ross of Ernest Hemingway, and he steps right off the page--or, should I say, out of the cassette. He's wearing glasses with a piece of paper under the nosepiece. "When he really wants to get cleaned up, he changes the paper," his wife explains. Philip Bosco reads as if he were Lillian and also Ernest Hemingway, a masterful presentation of a vivid piece of writing. The collection has 12 profiles, not all this fine, but still too good to be missed. Marlon Brando by Truman Capote, Isadora Duncan by Janet Flanner, A.J. Liebling on Floyd Patterson. The most eloquent on the most colorful. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
