I have enjoyed reading more short stories and was very pleased with these. Perhaps since this was done for the series Selected Shorts, the readers were well chosen. These are interesting short stories with a nice twist at the end.
still tilting at windmills, after all of these years.
poignant, saddening, irreverent, hysterical.
having participated in reading groups before, i particularly enjoyed 'xingu.'
short stories are a wonderful way to enjoy audio books. if, like me, you prefer unabridged to abridged, i will forgive you if a glance at the thirty-or-so hours of invested life required to make it through, say, 'our mutual friend,' causes you to blanch.
i can listen to one story before sleep and pick up the next night without a problem.
