Deemed “essential” in the canon of American literature, this audiobook
masterpiece performed in its entirety by a full cast of fifty makes the classic
accessible to everyone.
From a cemetery in a fictional mid-American
town, the dead speak the truths about their lives. Some speak of
hardships and sordid affairs, while others speak of their simple, honest, happy lives.
Some are elderly and others are youthful or children, but mortality has
claimed them all. Their voices reach us deeply—alternately plaintive,
anguished, enigmatic, angry, contemptuous, and comedic, evoking themes
of love, hope, disappointment, despair, and abiding faith. As the
Spoon River residents examine their lives, they invite us to do the
same. Download and start listening now!
