BLACK-EYED SUSAN A Short Story from 'Hardly Knew Her'

by | Read by Francoise Battiste

Mystery & Suspense • 25 mins. • Unabridged • © 2008

Narrator Francois Battiste mines the emotional yearnings and youthful attitude of Dontay as he ponders his lot in life and how much it might be improved with a little extra cash. Batiste adopts a childlike tone in his narration and matches the pacing of this engaging story. Placing emphasis on words that reflect Dontay's confidence, maturity, and intellect, Battiste lets the listener inside the young man's mind, shedding light on his hopes and wishes. The character of Dontay, as portrayed by Battiste, reflects the desires of a fully realized and engaging character, and we are made better by having known him.
