Electric Performances...

...by Ruby Dee and a young Jena Malone. This was my second time listening, but it won't be my last. Highly, highly recommended for all mature audiences. Darker themes of violence, racial injustice, and tragedy striking both young and old join with more general themes of love, loss and loneliness to make this an unsuitable listen for kids.

beautiful & heart rending

The story is heart rending,not a word out of place McCullers; beautifully realised by the readers for all characters but especially Frankie, Berenice( Ruby Dee) & John Henry.
