Synopsis

James Baldwin discussing the position of African American writers in the United States, F. Scott Fitzgerald reading from Othello, and a rare interview with William S. Burroughs are just some of the wealth of the striking voices of American writers recorded for BBC broadcasts in the twentieth century and gathered here in one remarkable collection. This incredible three-CD boxed set forms part of the British Library’s extensive audio series of documentary recordings by English-language authors and playwrights. The the collection brings modern American literature dramatically to life with writers as diverse as Vladimir Nabokov, Eudora Welty, John Steinbeck, Ralph Ellison, and Gertrude Stein. The majority of these recordings have never before been released, making this collection the perfect gift for any literature lover in your life who wishes to add these legendary figures to his or her impeccable library.

 

Details: Three CDs plus booklet, running time approximately 210 minutes.
