Actress Blythe Danner brings all of her experience and training to make this classic Cheever story come to life. Her enunciation, with just a tinge of a classic Southern accent, raises the enjoyment level and helps the listener better engage emotionally with the trials and tribulations of the story's aspiring playwright. Danner's rhythmic intonations and her rendition of the poetic alliterations enhance the beautifully structured sentences from this master storyteller. This is a perfect pairing of two artists, both at the top of their games.
