A flawless combination of narration and writing. Anthony Heald brings out the meter, rhythm and nuance of this short but perfect text. Washington Irving would have been pleased.
This looks to be a re-release of an older cassette tape I once had from Penguin Classics. It was the unabridged version and so is this - incorrectly identified here, as abridged. I have listened to two other versions of the story and this one narrated by Jonathan Hyde is by far the best.
I have previously enjoyed Anthony Heald reading The House of the Seven Gables, but this reading of Elmer Gantry is a work of art in itself. Both the reading and the writing are a "revelation".
