THE FACE PHANTOM Tales Inspired by the Mutter Museum

by | Read by Kathleen Chalfant, Dion Graham, George Guidall, Robin Miles, Barbara Rosenblat, Edoardo Ballerini

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

An exceptional group of narrators delivers disturbing tales of human folly and redemption in Sands's collection, inspired by artifacts in the unusual Mutter Museum. Framed by brief, atmospheric music by composer Brian DuFord, Sands's works depict flawed, resilient characters who are attempting to seek meaning and resolution from the unique misfortunes of their lives. While the tales are markedly different from one another, the undercurrent of sadness and strangeness running through the narrative is captured by measured pacing and empathetic characterizations. An ensemble of rare talents is well deployed here--from Barbara Rosenblat's warm, brusque tones to Edoardo Ballerini's frank, forceful tenor; Robin Miles's refreshing, bold intonations; and the instantly recognizable voice of George Guidall. A match for fans of short stories, speculative fiction, and oddities. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
