Publisher's Summary

Relationships...complex and fascinating, often riddled with selfishness, sprinkled with courage, sometimes cruelty, and yes, passion. For an American millionaire and his daughter at home and in turn-of-the-century England, marriages to a pair of former lovers bring complications to their would-be happiness. Amidst social rumors, the imperfection of the fragile bond of relationships weakens similarly to a crack in an otherwise perfect golden bowl.

The St. Charles Players present a unique telling of this classic tale, in a new multi-cast dramatization performed in exciting Radio Theatre style.

    "Many roads lead to Henry -- this is a gem"

    I don't even know why I like this so much. There is something indefinably charming about this dramatization. I own it on near-antique/frail cassette tapes and thought I would never be able to replace it -- what an unexpected joy to snap it up on audible. Not 5 stars because I don't care for Precious the cat's performance. Same old 2 meows all the way through. A small quibble that.

    Having read all of H. James' work (and a great deal of Wm. James' work, too) I find this dramatization brings to life the pictures I envisioned when first reading The Golden Bowl. Of course, there is the film with Uma Thurman, which is grand, but I love this little recording. It's hard to adapt James to the stage (real or virtual); even he himself was never able to succeed with a stage play (viz., Guy Domville).

    I should add that without recorded James books (Portrait of a Lady unabridged is marvelous) it would have been hard for me to get fascinated enough with "The Master" to read all he wrote, simply for the pleasure of it. (And I started this after turning 40. I had to mature a bit to appreciate Henry James and Proust, at last.) And do check out Colm Toibin's The Master -- it's a tour de force.

    Best advice I ever got for reading James: just relax and let the words flow over you!
