This unabridged audio version of i Cold Mountain i read by author Charles Frazier deserves at least as much acclaim as the bestselling print edition which won the National Book Award The tale chronicles a Confederate army deserter s search for home and love in the last days of the Civil War p Much has been made of the story s homage to i The Odyssey i the origins of which are found in an oral tradition One can t help but hear echoes of Homer when listening to Frazier s soft deliberate voice give life to his lyrical writing and to his understated yet convincing rendering of the overwhelming events of war Both Frazier s prose and reading are leisurely recalling a slow foot pace His delivery is uniquely suited to Innman s arduous adventure filled walk toward home and to the possibility of a reunion with Ada the woman he loves The author s reading does equal justice to Ada who is being transformed by her struggle for survival on her father s farm There is precious little dialogue and Frazier makes no effort at acting out the characters p p One small irritation in the production is a beeping noise at the end of each side Another minor complaint is that the tapes don t have individual boxes which was perhaps an attempt to make the overall package appear more booklike The recording does however make deft use of two brief musical interludes In a subtle twist the fiddle music that opens the first cassette when repeated as an accompaniment to the epilogue carries a bittersweet and unexpected resonance By all means forgive Random House Audio the tiny glitches pass over that slender abridged version and take home the real thing This audiocassette is a journey that will leave few listeners unchanged by the experience Running time hours cassettes i Naomi J Cohn i p, Based on Charles Frazier s National Book Award winning novel Anthony Minghella s screenplay is published to coincide with the Miramax Films release starring Nicole Kidman Jude Law Renee Zellweger Natalie Portman and Phillip Seymour Hoffman Cold Mountain is the story of Inman Jude Law a wounded and disenchanted Confederate soldier who embarks on a lonely and perilous return to Cold

country in turmoil, In his powerful fourth novel Charles Frazier returns to the time and place of Cold Mountain vividly bringing to life the chaos and devastation of the Civil War br br With her marriage prospects limited teenage Varina Howell agrees to wed the much older widower Jefferson Davis with whom she expects a life of security as a Mississippi landowner He instead pursues a career in politics and is eventually appointed president of the Confederacy placing Varina at the white hot center of one of the darkest moments in American history culpable regardless of her intentions br br The Confederacy falling her marriage in tatters and the country divided Varina and her children escape Richmond and travel south on their own now fugitives with bounties on their heads an entire nation in pursuit br br Intimate in its detailed observations of one woman s tragic life and epic in its scope and power Varina is a novel of an American war and its aftermath Ultimately the book is a portrait of a woman who comes to realize that complicity carries consequences, Asheville is a town with a strong sense of place architecture mountain views a creative locus a history as complicated as any Southern town Now twenty seven and then some of the legions of writers who call Asheville home create a literary landscape of this fabled Southern mountain town Views of Asheville casts a wide net capturing its ethos in prose and poetry The essays short stories poetry and book excerpts create a chorus of voices that reflect the social historic and creative fabric of Asheville The collection addresses everything from Thomas Wolfe s powerful legacy to the town s celebrated Art Deco architecture from struggles with development to the stark realities of Asheville s Jim Crow past from personal histories to its reputation as a nexus of the arts and all things cutting edge br br This is the third book in Eno Publishers s Views series that features the literary communities of

introduction by Daniel Wallace br br Introduction by Rob Neufeld br A full view of Asheville involves finally the recognition that writers are writing about it and are part of the evolution There s a danger of Asheville becoming a reality show but there are also good indications that the thrust is to bring people together for healthy understanding br
