With a supple voice that seems to shift from emotion to emotion effortlessly, Karis Campbell narrates this ingenious collection of monologues by the dead women of the urban fantasy DEADTOWN. As vividly imagined by Valente, Campbell creates varied voices for each of the sluts, mermaids, former punk rockers, and psychosis sufferers, as well as the Deadtown Public Radio talk show hostess. Campbell particularly succeeds at delivering the production's riffs on literary and cultural themes contained in its stories of time travel and romance as well as slam-poetry-style commentary on gender politics and some late-twentieth-century song lyrics. This is thought-provoking fun for listeners with a taste for wickedly smart one-woman shows. F.M.R.G. 2018 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
