Award-winning actress Juliet Stevenson continues her successful run of Henry James recordings with What Maisie Knew, a remarkable tour de force about a young child who is thrust into the adult world of drama and failed relationships. Stevenson’s masterful narration guides the listener through the melodic prose of James’s late middle period. Leighton Pugh gives us another of Émile Zola’s brutal and brilliant novels, L’Assommoir, while Barnaby Edwards presents some of Nietzsche’s most passionate and polemical writing with Twilight of the Idols and The Antichrist. We also have the final volume in our series of informative introductions, A Concise History of Italy.
