A writer like Gertrude Stein is an obvious target for parody. However, this piece was devised not just as a parody but also as a tribute. Whether one wishes to admit it or not, Gertrude Stein was a seminal figure in 20th century literature, one whose contribution will be the source of study and discussion for generations to come.

What did you like best about this story?

This audio essay was conceived as a parody/tribute to Gertrude Stein, an author I have not read. I admired Denis Daly's clever, intentionally nonsensical wordplay, made particularly enjoyable by narrator Nancy German's beautifully lyrical delivery!

Any additional comments?

Let's have more audiobooks narrated by Nancy German, please!

Thirteen-year-old Emily has saved up every single birthday wish from six to 12 years old, banking on a promise from the birthday fairy that one day she could use up all those wishes in one fell swoop. What Emily wishes for, however, is not a pony or new clothes or the chance to be a princess. She has a much bigger plan in mind.
