A great story is nothing if not a score for the human voice, a spell to seduce the ear, brain and heart. The stories in Overheard
cast a powerful spell. They take us into worlds that are as intimate as they are universal; as timeless as they are timely. Whether spoken, shouted, sung or murmured, here are stories that compel us to sit up and listen. (Alison MacLeod)
