"After spending a few hours reveling in this diverse collection, there will be voices in the listener's head . . . the voices of the women and men who shaped the 20th Century with the written versions of their words."

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Presko on January 2, 2009
Would it have been too much trouble to list the authors included in THIS three-cd set since a six cd set was reviewed in today's Wall Street Journal? To buy this item is to risk having to face the choice of forgoing half the collection or duplicating it. See WSJ.com for the review to which I refer by Brian Carney. The Somerset Maugham track sounds irresistible.

And ignore my rating since Amazon will not permit me to post without declaring one. Sfacim!

Forgive me if this is less of a review and more of a warning to vigilance about what you would be buying with your attenuated bankroll.
