Audible Editor Reviews

American author Ambrose Bierce earned himself fame with this work. Best known for its nontraditional timeline, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" takes place during the Civil War. Confederate sympathizer Peyton Farquhar finds himself condemned to death at the start. Dramatic music sets the chilling ambiance of this story. William Roberts's warm baritone carries the tale. His performance feels both calm and intelligent. As an auditory experience, the tale takes on even greater lyricism than in print. Lovers of the short story will enjoy this production.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Classic American Short Stories collection.

Five great American short story writers, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, are represented here. Different in atmosphere and writing style, they nevertheless caught the mood and concerns of the day in a way that was distinctly American. Bierce's "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" leaves echoes in the imagination; the stories by Crane and London recall the themes of the Civil War and the Klondike for which they are well known. Twain's humor is to the fore in "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," and O. Henry's sharp observations make his neat tales a joy to listen to. An attractive and accessible collection!
