MUD AND STARS Travels in Russia with Pushkin, Tolstoy, and Other Geniuses of the Golden Age

by | Read by Sara Wheeler

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Sara Wheeler narrates her travelogue of the places trod upon by the greats of Russian literature from 1800-1910. She gives insights into various authors' lives--Pushkin, Lermontov, Gogol, Tolstoy, and Chekhov, among others--the places where they lived, and what those places are like now. Those who have read, or listened to, THE ANNA KARENINA FIX may find these works to be somewhat complementary. Wheeler's alto voice and British accent make for a pleasant listening experience. She reads her own work with disciplined enthusiasm and energy that are very winsome, narrating clearly and never being overly dramatic. Many authors are not the best choice to deliver their own work. In this case, however, Wheeler does a splendid job. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
