METROPOLITAN STORIES

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jill Eikenberry

Fiction • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Jill Eikenberry lends her gentle voice to these subtly humorous short stories of life behind the scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Based in reality, they cross over into fantasy when the art comes to life (literally). Eikenberry gives unique voices to antique chairs discussing their previous lives, muses slipping out of their paintings, custodians from the Bronx, and more. The listener feels sympathy for the centuries-old statue of Adam who falls over while trying to move his foot. She offers just the right amount of attitude to the "mezz" girls who serve guests at fundraising events and the two night security guards who tryst in the curator's closet. The stories are a delight, made more so by Eikenberry's splendid narration. J.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
