The Bostonians, Vol. 1 & 2


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.9 stars; 7 reviews)

This bittersweet tragicomedy centers on an odd triangle of characters: Basil Ransom, a political conservative from Mississippi; Olive Chancellor, Ransom's cousin and a Boston feminist; and Verena Tarrant, a pretty, young protégée of Olive's in the feminist movement. The storyline concerns the struggle between Ransom and Olive for Verena's allegiance and affection, though the novel also includes a wide panorama of political activists, newspaper people, and quirky eccentrics.(Summary by Wikipedia) (16 hr 48 min)

Amazing find


(5 stars)

Best James in Librivox so far. Much better than Jolly Place. And much less sad than what Maisy Knew.
