Revisit a Classic with Robert G. Slade
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff revisit Willa Cather’s classic, My Ántonia, narrated by Robert G. Slade. He delivers the voices of Bohemians, Norwegians, and Russian immigrants with subtlety and captures the cadences of young and old—and most of all, inhabits the coming of age of the storyteller Jim Burden. Ántonia is one of American literature’s most striking heroines—strong, independent, spirited, and motherly, she survives and prevails.
