Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Flo Gibson

Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1920

Flo Gibson's voice is that of a gentle and naughty grandmother gossiping with you over tea and crumpets. It is the perfect foil for QUEEN LUCIA. It is the sound of a handful of gravel being tossed at your window in the night, summoning you to romp on the green. And that exactly fits this marvelous satire about the inhabitants of Riseholme. Lucia's status is endangered by a fraudulent guru (the curry cook), by a psychic princess, and, most keenly, by a newcomer, the divine diva, Olga. It's all so delicious, as Olga would say. Benson draws each character with charity and malice; Gibson's narration allows the listener to choose between the two. B.H.B.
