Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bahni Turpin

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Narrator Bahni Turpin skillfully navigates this collection of stories ranging from science fiction to Caribbean folktales, love stories to journeys of self-discovery. Expertly crafting voices for each character, Turpin weaves tales that showcase Hopkinson's inventive writing--and her own remarkable command of accents. Turpin transforms her delivery to suit the tale she's telling. In "Precious," a character's every sound transforms into gems and coins. In "A Habit of Waste," a self-conscious woman is surprised to see her own body board a bus after elective surgery. In "Fisherman," a young person has a sensual encounter with a madam. Turpin's vibrant voices and pacing--especially her presentation of dialogue--combine with deep insight into each story to produce a stellar listening experience. J.C.G.
