Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michele-Denise Woods

Literary Fiction • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1937

"So the beginning of this was a woman and she had come back from buryin' the dead . . ." Janie Crawford, strong, beautiful, enduring and faithful, tells her story and, in doing so, celebrates a rich African-American community, culture and language. Woods presents Janie's story with such intimacy and nuance of phrase that the listener seems to sit with Janie's friend, Phoeby, on the back stoop in the gathering dark of a hot Florida night. Woods's soft, melodious dialect, murmurs of assent and sharp "Naw, Jody!" create a complete portrait. An audiobook like this is a rare achievement. Don't miss it! This is a masterpiece. L.R.S.
