Audiobook read by Ruby Dee. I read this book perhaps 10 years ago and remember liking it very much. But hearing it was a different experience altogether. You always hear that certain writing is meant to be heard rather than read, but this is the first time I've experienced that. The language was just, well, poetic, I guess. Although you've never seen the words used in just that way, you know immediately what they mean. What a wonderful experience. I may follow Kathy Perry's example and listen to it again and again.
