Beautiful Stories Great Voices
Little gems of well written short stories . Discovering new authors leads to more of what's featured here stacked high upon my reading pile. Thank you for the introduction David Sedaris.
Shorts with well defined characters, all of the selected pieces equally brilliant.
Just spend the ten bucks, you'll thank yourself for the experience.
Listening again and again to this well edited and voiced over body of work
Voice over artist that read the Tobias Wolff piece did a fantastic job bringing it to life. Solid talent all around.
