Narrator Marlain Angelides's delightful British accent is perfect for this biography of E. Nesbit. The subtitle, "Victorian Iconoclast, Children's Author, and Creator of The Railway Children," provides the perfect synopsis of Nesbit's life. Listeners learn of Nesbit's poetry, articles, and stories, and her passion for life, her children, and friends, both literary and socialist. Angelides narrates in clipped tones, incorporating footnotes and asides smoothly and subtly. Letters, articles, and snippets of stories are recited with the appropriate emotive verve. Angelides's steady narration grows more fluid as it progresses and is well suited to the academic nature of this biography. No matter the age or era, Nesbit's literary output continues to delight listeners of all ages. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
