Audible Editor Reviews

Storyteller Davis is at it again - telling delightful stories of his childhood in North Carolina. When he gets sick and can't see out of the dark curtains in his room, he cuts his mom's brand new drapes, just like he learned in school. "zig, zag, zig, zag," he energetically repeats until listeners can almost see the rows of men shaking hands and women joined by their skirts that have been created from the drapes. His sweet, childish voice is full of enthusiasm because he's sure his mother will love his handiwork. He soon sorrowfully describes his mother's fury when she sees what he's done. What parent and child won't identify with (and secretly laugh at) these antics?

Publisher's Summary

Two new Appalachian stories from the author of the award winning Listening for the Crack of Dawn; an ideal introduction to contemporary storytelling for adults. Both stories are based upon real people. In the first, a disastrous birthday enables a child to learn more than an adult possibly could. In the second, two unusual people live their conviction that people are more important than things.

With Party People, anybody who has ever suffered Birthday Party Anxiety will identify with the boy whose story is told. "Otto and Marguerite" is about a mom and pop musical team who refused to accept more than 10 dollars per night for dance hall work. Otto and Marguerite's ideas on how just about everything should be done will leave you laughing through your tears.
