Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alyssa Bresnahan

Literary Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Because the gifted narrator is enthralled by the wonderful, awful story she has to tell, this novel enters into another dimension in which sound and meaning reinforce one another beyond the power of either the printed book or the interpretive voice alone. The story of the long life of Daisy Stone Goodwill Flett is told from a puzzling point of view: at times, we're Daisy herself remembering herself, while at other times we're objectively detached witnesses observing the vicissitudes of Daisy and her world. Bresnahan's slow, precise, emotionally controlled, yet intense, delivery allows us to feel the story and honors both the crystal prose of Carol Shields and the private life of Daisy Flett. This is an audiobook of the very first class. P.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
