Both book and narrator are first rate!
I enjoyed this book very much. It is published by The University of Tennessee Press, so that was a plus for me since my blood runs deep orange. Then it turned out to be even more interesting than I had hoped.
Casey covers Vaudeville from around 1912 through the early to mid 20's. Specifically, the book covers how male and female impersonators and Vaudevillians of color were perceived. I learned quite a bit from the book.
Lee Ann Howlett is the narrator, and she does a wonderful job. Of course, since this is non-fiction history there are no voices to perform, but after listening to this book for over seven hours, I can honestly say that her voice just seems right for this book. I can see myself listening to more of her books in the future. Don't know how she would with fiction, but her non-fiction is wonderful.
I received this book from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
