BIRDS OF A LESSER PARADISE

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This exquisite short story collection explores one beautiful, haunting revelation of the soul after another along with the marvels of nature. Bergman's heartrending tenderness can be heard in every syllable of Cassandra Campbell's sensitive performance. Bergman's prose teeters between lyricism and homeliness, a quality movingly conveyed by Campbell. Relationships and interactions between humans and animals, and between humans, become transcendent in this mesmerizing pairing of author and narrator. The choice to love or fear flora and fauna collides with the collection's theme—the elusiveness of love. Campbell rises to the challenge by softly, delicately, almost imperceptibly, voicing compassion, wit, insight, and humor. A.W.
