This is a wonderful reading of several American classics, including two by Poe, two by O. Henry, and one each by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Each is narrated more like a single-voice radio dramatization, complete with background music, than a regular straight forward reading. My favorite was The Yellow Wallpaper by Gilman. Although I was already familiar with the tale, it was absolutely mezmerizing. Two thumbs way up for this collection!
