3 compact discs with booklet
In the years after World War II, the BBC invited some of the leading English and Irish writers of short stories to read their own works on the radio. For the first time this unrivalled archive of recordings—many of stories unavailable in audio format and none previously available in the voies of their own authors—can be heard.
This 3-CD set includes a wide range of stories—from the elegantly-turned miniatures of Somerset Maugham to the eerie supernatural tales of Algernon Blackwood. Also among the dozen writers included are Kingsley Amis, Edna O’Brien, A.E. Coppard, William Trevor, and Lord Dunsany. This set offers a unique opportunity to hear some of the most highly-regarded masters of the craft in their own voices.
