by | Read by Penelope Anne Miller

Romantic Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

This somewhat trashy, cliché-ridden, soft-core romance is narrated by a beautiful, world-weary young "citizeness" of the world who escapes from jaded Europe to sensuous Kenya. The echoes of Isak Dinesen (OUT OF AFRICA) and Beryl Markham (WEST WITH THE NIGHT) are intentional. One either likes this sort of thing, or one doesn't. As for the performer, Penelope Anne Miller does one very exceptional thing: She gives the vivid impression of sweaty heat. Somehow this feat makes all the difference in persuading one to listen to this steamy, African Bonjour Tristesse. Y.R. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
