such a pleasure to listen to!

(5 stars)

Nick Bulka reads Brett Harte as a mixture of fairytale-telling and audioplay which it is an intellectual and childlike pleasure to listen to. Further intriguing is Mr. Harte's claim that all his stories are true, indeed he claims that only once he employed pure fantasy and afterwards was proven true again when an old newspaper article was send to him, corroborating his story! So the rendition that Mr. Bulka offers is a perfect reflection on both this claim, the true core it certainly holds, and the realm of imagination that Mr. Harte's work nonetheless inhabits, and beautifully so!
