I love Henry James – except for The Turn of the Screw. Oh well. I’ll be looking forward to the prologue, read by Richard Armitage. Audible, what a genius move.
Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Emmy winner Emma Thompson lends her immense talent and experienced voice to Henry James’s gothic ghost tale, The Turn of the Screw.
When a governess is hired to care for two children at a British country estate, she begins to sense an otherworldly presence around the grounds. Are they really ghosts she’s seeing? Or is something far more sinister at work?
Having performed in films based on some of the greatest works in literature – including Sense and Sensibility, Howards End, Much Ado About Nothing, and Henry V – Thompson is no stranger to the classics, and she lends a graceful eloquence to this moody, macabre story. Joined by listener favorite Richard Armitage, who performs the prologue, Thompson reinvigorates this psychological thriller of life, death, evil, and the unknown.
