  • Babette's Feast and Sorrow-Acre

    "Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: give me leave to do my utmost." This line from "Babette's Feast" lends itself to both of the stories in this audio collection, which tell of unbreakable human spirit and total commitment to life choices. "Babette's Feast," now an award-winning film, takes a humorous look at a pure-spirited community in which love, lost youth, self-denial, and creative urges contribute to making the right choices. And "Sorrow-Acre," the most anthologized of Isak Dinesen's stories, challenges the most profound choice of all. Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Colleen Dewhurst's warm, sensitive interpretation reveals the subtle beauty of Dinesen's prose.

    I just LOVE these stories, and think Collen Dewhurst did a magnificent job reading them. Couldn't go to bed because I couldn't stop listening.

    The funniest and most popular sportswriter in America abandons his desk at Sports Illustrated to caddy for some of the world's most famous golfers, and some celebrity duffers, recounting it all in this hilarious and revealing look at the world of golf.

    Overall

    But it's not even good writing! He only seems to speak in 10th grade metaphors. This book makes me think sports writing (for which i have always had great respect) has gone the way of all journalism, into the media trash heap. And worse, it's proof that insecure men love salacious gossip more than the women they trash. This book is gossip in a light golf bag. There is almost no golf involved, just a lot of trite wallowing. Didn't get half way through before i had to turn it off for sheer boredom. Whatever it takes to make you feel like a man Rick, and it sounds like it takes a lot.
