This cd was touted in the NY Times six years ago but is unfortunately not available as a new item. Not aware of any plans to reissue it. It is however, fascinating to hear the actual voices of so many historic writers including James Joyce,Shaw, Kipling , Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Tolkien etc. The cd is about 70 minutes long
I gave this is a gift to someone who is an enthusiast of both James Joyce and Cole Porter. If you know someone who has a love of any or all of these authors I think they would enjoy this cd as a unique item in their collection.
