Editorial Reviews

When Jeff Buckley drowned in a Tennessee slackwater channel, in 1997, at the age of 30, a generation lost one of its most soulful and erudite musical heroes. It is fitting that his album Grace should receive the royal treatment from Bloomsbury’s superb 33 1/3 series of album biographies. His only studio album, Grace is both an opening salvo and a goodbye whisper to a brief career in song.

Susan Spain’s humble voice is a perfect match for the text, written by Daphne Brooks. Brooks brings high musical knowledge and a deft appreciation for the era in which Grace was released to an essentially personal narrative of her relationship to the great album. This audiobook is a nostalgic and moving journey.

Publisher's Summary

I gulped. My mouth was dry. How could I tell her? How could I just announce that her son's innards had been sucked out by giant worms and that his skin was probably flapping somewhere in the morning breeze? I turned away, struggling to find the words.

It's WICKED! It'll suck you in.

And it's to be continued....

Critic Reviews

"In this wildly inventive, highly original series the children must think things through and save themselves and their loved ones. The series is performed with great energy by Kate Hosking and Stig Wemyss. American middle school readers will enjoy these zany and terrifying adventures." (AudioFile)
