From AudioFile
One of Canada's most beloved writers, W. O. Mitchell, was said to PERFORM his work, not merely read it. This two-CD set features five of Mitchell's most famous pieces, recorded over seven years at three different venues across Canada. Mitchell's playful voice, combined with his impeccable pace and timing, carries audiences through such wonderful yarns as "How To Fail At Public Speaking" and "Melvin Arbuckle's First Course In Shock Therapy." Mitchell once said that he loved "the immediate thrust of a live audience as it responds to story magic." This impressive recording is a perfect illustration of precisely that sort of magic.
