by | Read by Meryl Streep

Classics • 38 mins. • Abridged • © 1978

Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep draws on her varied experience and affects the flat, sorrowful tones of two characters of the affluent Northeast: Amy, the young daughter of a couple in the midst of hosting late night revelries, and the household cook. Inhabiting these characters, Streep dramatizes the tragedy of alcoholism with a self-righteous tone that evokes sorrow in the listener for Amy's plight and her eventual heartbreaking decision on what do about her parents. Streep uses her acting and vocal range to add new layers of emotional insight to the polished prose of this master storyteller. R.O. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
