Critic Reviews

"You get James Jones, gruff and delicate, reading the famous From Here to Eternity passage in which Prewitt plays Taps; the words are filled with an infinite sadness and an endless patience." (Boston Globe)
"Each listening experience is a delight." (Playboy)
"The pages come alive." (The New York Times, Thomas Lask)
