Audible Editor Reviews

Authors contained in this short story collection include Pushkin, Tolstoy, Flaubert, and Francois Coppe among others. Walter Zimmerman's subdued and reflective voice establishes a no-frills listening experience; the deep emotions of each story comes from the language itself, and his ponderous tone reflects the collection's overall moral gravity. Listeners will enjoy this lucid performance of classic - albeit some of the lesser known - 19th-century French and Russian stories.
