    This collection of nine short stories by Flannery O'Connor was published posthumously in 1965. The flawed characters of each story are fully revealed in apocalyptic moments of conflict and violence that are presented with comic detachment.

    Any additional comments?

    This was possibly the best audiobook experience I've ever had with fiction. Each of the readers did a wonderful job with voices and with the "voice" of these stories, which are among the greatest (and funniest) in the American canon. As soon as I finished, I started over at the beginning and started listening to the first stories again.

  • American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer

    J. Robert Oppenheimer was one of the iconic figures of the 20th century, a brilliant physicist who led the effort to build the atomic bomb but later confronted the moral consequences of scientific progress. When he proposed international controls over atomic materials, opposed the development of the hydrogen bomb, and criticized plans for a nuclear war, his ideas were anathema to powerful advocates of a massive nuclear buildup during the anti-Communist hysteria of the early 1950s.

    If you could sum up American Prometheus in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating and engaging true story from American history.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Cummings – was your favorite?

    He read it all so well I did not even think about his technique.
