Jane Austen's most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice is brought to sparkling new life in this "wonderful, unforgettable" recording from AudioFile Earphones award-winning narrator Alison Larkin. A witty and always original voice Alison Larkin follows her "hugely entertaining" narration of Pride and Prejudice with Songs from Regency England, to give the listener a sense of what after dinner family entertainment might have sounded like in Jane Austen's time. Recorded in a drawing room not unlike the Bennets', a young lady who sounds suspiciously like Mary Bennet sings The Lonely Ash Grove, Ye Banks and Braes & and Down by the Salley Gardens, making up in vocal enthusiasm what she lacks in polish. "Raised in England by adoptive parents, Alison Larkin was actually born in America. She herself is a comic writer and performer - and she approaches Austen as a satirist - she has genuine theatrical skill - sustained comic creations. The voice reveals all." The New Yorker "There's a vintage feel to Alison Larkin's narration, The bell-like quality of her sweetly accented voice harkens back to another, quieter, time. However, her delivery... offers a flexibility that is contemporary and easy to hear."
