Finalist in AudioFile Magazine's 2007 Audie Awards in the category "Audiobook Adapted from Another Medium"

This three-CD compilation features some of the best short stories from National Public Radio's Selected Shorts, an award-winning series of classic and contemporary short fiction read by distinguished stage and screen actors and recorded live at the Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City. More than three hours of recordings in each collection capture the intimacy of live performance, with stories that are alternately exciting, poignant, and funny, making this the perfect accompaniment to any number of daily activitiesódriving, cooking, exercising, relaxing, or intently listening.

Timeless Classics includes, among others, James Thurber's "The Night the Ghost Got In," read by Isaiah Sheffer; Edith Wharton's "Roman Fever," read by Maria Tucci; Jack London's "Make Westing," read by Steven Gilborn; D. H. Lawrence's "The Rocking Horse Winner," read by John Shea; Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery," read by Marian Seldes; Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game," read by Charles Keating; and Raymond Carver's "Cathedral," read by James Naughton.

From AudioFile:

TIMELESS CLASSICS features a few famous short stories--such as Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery"--and a couple of less familiar ones--such as Edith Wharton's "Roman Fever" and Jack London's "Make Westing." What makes these retellings fresh is the dynamic of the live audience, with the murmurs and, at times, laughter of the crowd helping to direct readers. This gives the narrators extra energy for tour-de-force performances, whether comic, such as Isaiah Sheffer's reading of James Thurber's "The Night the Ghost Got In"; dramatic, such as Charles Keating's reading of Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game"; or personal, such as James Naughton's reading of Raymond Carver's "Cathedral." This production could have listeners gasping along with the Symphony Space audience. J.A.S. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
