by | Read by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs • Abridged • © 1994

Nonfiction is generally a good candidate for abridgment. This program, about the similarities between domestic cats and big cats, is about one third the length of the complete version. The content is comprehensive enough to satisfy some listeners and to encourage others to seek out the complete version in print or audio. On the point of an author reading her own work, Thomas fares less well. Her voice is dry and, though light and clear, it doesn’t hold our attention. It’s always interesting to hear the author’s voice, but in this case the program takes on the tone of a scholarly lecture. A trained reader would provide valuable access to Thomas’s work.
