Read from October 20 to 26, 2010

This is a recording of six stories, by different authors, each with a different reader.

The good:
The stories are interesting. My favorite was "The Whore's Child", by Richard Russo. This is part of a long running series of performances in Symphony Space, NYC, that is broadcast on NPR. Many of these collections are available by download from the New York or Brooklyn Public Libraries.

The bad:
They are performed in Symphony Space, for a live audience that bursts out laughing at even the lamest bit of humor. This interrupts the flow of the stories. Better recording methods would help.

Bottom line:
I’ll be listening to more of these collections.
