Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0694523925, Audio Cassette)

Caedmon brings together some of the most unforgettable stories in literature, vividly realized both by the authors themselves and by a cast of superb actors

Continuing and enhancing the Caedmon tradition of bringing the greatest literature to vibrant audio life, here are stories that have echoed though the years, brilliantly performed by an array of renowned actors, as well as the authors themselves.

These fourteen unforgettable recordings feature Eudora Welty's earthy wit in Why I Live at the PO., Ossie Davis's electrifying incarnation of Langston Hughes's eloquent A Toast to Harlem, and John Updike's delightfully droll reading of his own Persistence of Desire.

The Caedmon Short Story Collection offers such a rich and varied spectrum of listening experiences-whether shattering, darkly hilarious, or cuttingly incisive-it will make for countless hours of enjoyment that only increase with each return to it.
