Product description

From AudioFile

This collection is amazing. It isn't always funny because in a thousand years standards of humor have changed drastically and topical puns from even a hundred years ago have aged badly. But when it is funny, it's fantastic. David Timson's selections are masterful, including everyone from Dickens to Wodehouse and Parker. The cast brings them fully to life, handling even the pauses and over accenting of syllables it takes to make some puns work, and switching accents from Twain's frontier English to Wodehouse's British. With selections from children's literature (THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS), wonderful nonsense (ALICE IN WONDERLAND), and satire, this anthology spans Anglo-American civilization, offering something for everyone.
