Audible Editor Reviews

Eugene O'Neill's 1922 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama (his second of four Pulitzers) may seem, with its slangy dialects, a shade unsubtle to readers today. But listeners probably won't notice, thanks to this excellent, nuanced production. Stacy Keach emphasizes the likable, vulnerable side of a Swedish coal-barge captain reunited after 15 years with his daughter. Keach prevents the father from descending into caricature. Alison Elliot also avoids the stereotype inherent in her part as his man-hating prostitute daughter, and Dwier Brown conveys both innocence and scorn as a young Irish seaman. Atmospheric sound effects are laid in subtly. A saloon-and-sea drama, this early O'Neill triumph has deservedly found a rich, new life.

Publisher's Summary

The passion of a coal barge captain's daughter and a handsome sailor takes a tumultuous turn when secrets from her past are revealed. Nobel Laureate Eugene O'Neill won the second of his four Pulitzer Prizes for this heroic classic.

    "Great book, great performances"

    The story itself is really fascinating, and the cast really adds to it. This is an all around classic work. I can't imagine anyone unsatisfied with this book.

    "Great production"

    Enjoyed the well crafted production. The ambient sounds were only enough and not obtrusive.

    The story so captured the area and time. A good production- really enjoyed it.
