    " A good audio collection of short stories about readers and writers. I especially liked "The Night Bookmobile" by Audrey, "Exchange" by Ray Bradbury, and "The Writer's Model" by Molly Giles. "

About the Author

Author Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was born October 28, 1903 in London, England. After short periods as an art student and schoolmaster, he devoted himself to travel and to the writing of novels. His novels are unusually highly wrought and precisely written. Those written before 1939 may be described as satirical. During World War II his writing took a more serious and ambitious turn. Waugh also wrote travel books.
