by | Read by Eleanor Bron

Literary Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1959

This captivating story is told in turn by each of its four main characters: two men (a famous playwright and his director) and two women (the playwright's wife and his new secretary). Although two narrators, male and female, would have been more effective, one is enough if that one is as skilled as Eleanor Bron. She has wisely resisted the impulse to change her voice for each character and reads instead with straightforward eloquence. Especially eloquent are the words of the young secretary. Bron's melodious voice soon becomes her voice, a lovely extension of the young woman herself. Forthright, innocent and wise, she quietly transforms the lives of them all.
