“[Oates’] baroque imagination, her ability to convey the depths of violence and evil lying just below a thin veneer of civilization, gives her stories a chilling dimension.
“Chilling yet impressive—typical Oates.”
“[Guidall and Caruso] are superb. They give realistic texture to the American idiomatic speech so important to Oates’ modern characterizations. They also understand that these charged stories need quiet, sympathetic voices held well in control as a counter to the emotional chaos emanating from the page. Their sensitive, interpreting voices are welcome company. One wouldn't want to make the journey through these stories alone.”
“These tightly drawn, insightful, and compulsively readable stories by the enormously talented and prolific Oates belong in all fiction collections. Highly recommended.”
George Guidall, winner of eighty AudioFile Erphones Awards, has twice won the prestigious Audie Award for Excellence in Audiobook Narration. In 2014 the Audio Publishers Association presented him with the Special Achievement Award for an audiobook narrator of exceptional stature and accomplishment. During his thirty-year recording career he has recorded over 1,100 audiobooks, won multiple awards, been a mentor to many narrators, and shown by example the potential of fine storytelling. Among Guidall’s narration achievements are Crime and Punishment, The Iliad, and John Irving’s A Widow for One Year, which earned him an Audie Award for best unabridged narration of a novel, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. Guidall’s forty-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie Award for best performance off Broadway, and frequent television appearances.
