A PAIR OF SILK STOCKINGS Best of Women's Short Stories, Volume 2

by | Read by Harriet Walter

Classics • 5 hrs. • Anthology • © 2009

Whether one is looking to dabble in the classics or enjoy an attention-grabbing tale, this collection of stories by and about women will hold the listener captive until the last. Each story is beautifully written, with often-breathtaking prose and plot twists that transcend their time periods. Narrator Harriet Walter's awareness of and appreciation for each character is, simply put, perfect—whether the subject is the complex social structures of Jane Austen's England or one woman's quiet desperation in Kate Chopin's "A Pair of Silk Stockings." As one story ends and another begins, Walter transforms her voice without missing a beat immediately allowing the listener to become immersed in the next title. This collection will appeal to a wide audience, thanks to the unique skills of the authors and the narrator. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
