    Audio CD Description:

    An audio collection of five short stories. Written and read by S. Pearl Sharp. Directed by Iona Morris.

    The collection of stories is inspired by a line from Zora Neale Hurston. For dramatic impact I cheated a little, editing the lines to Death…bowed…and left us to act out our ceremonies over unimportant things. Read the actual passage in her insightful autobiography Dust Tracks On A Road (1942).
