Editorial Reviews

Washington Irving's stories tend to become legends. "The Devil and Tom Walker" is one of those legends; its subject matter is human nature itself - goodness, evil, temptation, and fate. Cindy Hardin Killavey performs this story patiently, with the sweet, quiet intonation of a bedtime storyteller. The plot of the audiobook is Faustian - a man is dissatisfied with his life and makes a pact with the devil. However, Washington Irving's lively language disguises these deeper subjects in the pure joy of language.

Publisher's Summary

This is one of Washington Irving's most famous stories, ranking just behind "Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". Tom Walker was not the nicest soul you'd ever meet. When he agrees to work with a stranger he comes upon in the woods, more things change than just his fortune. A strange twist of fate not only changes Tom's marital status but also hisstation & profession. A slip of the lip when least expected adds another turn to this classic story of light and dark.
