Hearing these authors read their own work gave me a whole new level of understanding. I was especially moved by James Jones' reading from the Thin Red Line. Volume 2 contains: Nelson Algren reading from The Man with the Golden Arm, Bernard Malamud reading "The Mourners" from The Magic Barrel, John Updike reading "Lifeguard" from Pigeon Feathers and Other Stories, and James Jones reading from The Thin Red Line.
I'm really enjoying these readings on CD. It's wonderful to hear the authors read their own work. They read with such feeling and vigor. The CD packaging is beautifully done and the liner notes are astute and insightful. This is a great gift for the literature lovers in your life (or to keep for yourself).
