Listeners who dismiss author Rudyard Kipling as a cheerleader for British imperialism will be enlightened by this little-known history of the author's 10 formative years in America. Narrator Joshua Kane may not yet be familiar to many audiobook listeners, but his is an interesting, distinctive, resonant voice, one that might sound a bit rough and staticky but has the qualities of classic noir and suspense narration. Here he effectively conveys the fine mood and balance of author Benfey's narrative, which looks at this favorite old author in an entirely new light, and will, we predict, make your next listening choice one of those timeless tales that enchant and delight us still.
