Two well-known storytellers collaborate on this well-planned audio collection of modern folklore. The anecdotes and very short stories--like those passed from friend to friend in conversation--represent our fears, worries, prejudices and delight in our neighbors' missteps. Humorous and ironic, these modern legends have incredible plot twists that make us chuckle with recognition, gasp with astonishment, and nod approvingly at a character's cleverly executed retribution. Dick Hyman's lively jazz piano introduces the collection, setting a jaunty tone for Holt's and Mooney's engaging storytelling. These tales offer good family listening and may appeal especially to teenagers, who will appreciate the pace and ironic humor. R.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
