Three narrators--Gisela Chípe, Vas Eli, and the splendid Arthur Morey--enrich these tilt-a-whirl stories. They voice simple characters whose lives become fantastically disrupted. To select three of the many outstanding performances: Chípe narrates in a mischievously straightforward way one of the best, "The Little People," about a town that is co-inhabited by two-inch-tall humans. As Eli brings dark undertones to the gothic "Guided Tour," his engaging delivery suggests restrained malevolence. And Arthur Morey, a Golden Voice narrator, casts a spell with the twisty plot of "Theater of Shadows." His tone, timbre, and cadence provide a lesson in narration. All three masterfully deliver these fabulist tales. Millhauser's resourceful imagination is well served in this rich audiobook. A.D.M.
