White People (1991)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Writer: Allan Gurganus; Genres: Fiction, Short Stories

Too busy to read? No problem. Just drop this newly released audiocassette into the player and let someone else do the reading for you. You don't even have to take your hands off the steering wheel to turn the pages.

Soft, syrupy, and indisputably Southern, Allan Gurganus' drawling delivery inhabits the funny, touching stories which make up White People with quietly dazzling authority. The set pieces here are capable of eliciting more heartfelt laughter than most stand-up comedy. A+
