Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Fiction • 27.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

A mythical epic of a “golden age,” Mark Helprin’s WINTER'S TALE is a poetic masterpiece about the beauty and complexity of the human soul, justice, love, and the magic of nature. Spanning the last century, Helprin’s novel regained acclaim last year when the NEW YORK TIMES identified it as one of the single best works of American fiction published in the last 25 years. The allegory transports the listener into Helprin’s love affair with New York City and lyrical prose. Narrator Oliver Wyman’s art transcends this brilliant work with his unflagging spirit, awe, wonder, and range of literally dozens of distinctive voices. His remarkable versatility celebrates vocal depth—in characters who range from Dickensian presences to the airy breathiness of gentle souls. He is the harmonious complement to Helprin’s kaleidoscopic imagination, and acknowledges the book’s grace and wit with every utterance. A.W.
