Monstrous Beauty

by Elizabeth Fama, read by Katherine Kellgren. Macmillan Audio, 2012. 8 hours; 7 discs.


Alternating storylines link Hester to a 300-year-old curse on the women in her family, which began when a mermaid gave up her fins for a man’s love. Kellgren artfully clarifies shifts between past and present. A bonus narrator interview reveals how she researched and created the individualized soundscape for this production.
