THE PENGUIN BOOK OF THE MODERN AMERICAN SHORT STORY

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Erin Bennett, Scott Brick, Cassandra Campbell, Frankie Corzo, Ramón de Ocampo, John Freeman, et al.

Fiction • 17.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

A brief review can only hint at the many pleasures of this fine anthology of the best short stories of the past 50 years, performed by some of the most gifted narrators working today. Every listener will single out favorites, but there are few, if any, stiffs here, and the match of story to narrator shows a shrewd understanding of the interior character and distinctive voice and tone of each story. The order is by publication date, and the stories are best experienced separately, rather than in bouts. Ranging from under five minutes to a little over an hour, these 37 modern classics will provide more than a month of rich, challenging, and deeply satisfying listening. D.A.W.
