Daisy Miller by Henry James
Narrator Kitty Hendrix deftly transports listeners to the aristocratic echelon of Europe in this 1879 classic. American Frederick Winterbourne and his Aunt Costello are at a hotel in Switzerland when he observes the beautiful young American of the title. Hendrix outdoes herself with both male characters during an amusing conversation between Daisy’s younger brother, Randolph, and Winterbourne, who is seeking to learn all about her. Hendrix's rendering of the opulent setting gives listeners a glimpse of a bygone era as Daisy dates Winterbourne and an Italian suitor named Giovanelli, which shocks almost everyone. Most aghast is Aunt Costello, who is portrayed perfectly as the old-fashioned snob she is. Class and cultural differences don’t matter to Daisy, who resents everyone's interference. Hendrix is spot-on with an array of accents, Winterbourne's and Giovanelli's reactions to Daisy, and the tragic conclusion. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
Edgar Allan by John Neufeld
This audio production of a book published nearly 50 years ago could be dismissed as sounding like a teacher reading to her class. After all, Kitty Hendrix is narrating a first-person account of a preteen boy. Young Michael, who is white, recounts a few months in his family's life when they foster a black toddler named Edgar, who changes the family members' views of each other at the same time that they're judged by their small community.
Hendrix's voice is mellow enough to let the text--including Michael's observations and confrontations--remain central. This is more than a middle-grade story about race. Hendrix's sensitive delivery invites thoughts about the way the family handles pressure from without--and from within--as well as the lingering questions of "difference."
