This powerful recording of "The Yellow Wallpaper", read by award-winning narrator Alison Larkin, is followed by an essay entitled "Why I Wrote the Yellow Wallpaper", by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
The narrator of this chilling tale speaks of a beautiful house in the country her husband has taken for the summer. But its beauty is marred by her oppressive bedroom, its ugly yellow wallpaper, and the rest cure that her doctor and husband have forced on her.
"Alison Larkin's reading of The Yellow Wallpaper is haunting. Through careful intonation, Larkin helps the listener to grasp the main character's growing mental instability despite her certainty of her perceptions. Larkin finishes the audiobook with a letter from the author explaining why she wrote the story.... Outstanding." (AudioFile Magazine)
