Leslie Norris Stories

Artist: Leslie Norris
Media: CD
Length: N/A
Item #: EN003
Price: $24.95

Leslie Norris (1921-2006), in both his poetry and fiction, creates realistic portrayals of everyday village life, of families and friendship, of field, garden, and wilderness, and the animals and birds that are discovered there. He writes with great compassion and understanding, always with a wisdom and high regard for what one reviewer called "the fragility of life." In this 4 disc CD collection, he reads in his rich, resonant voice 13 of his stories. Norris has received many awards and honors for his work. These include the British Arts Council Award, the Alice Hunt Bartlett Prize, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, Poet in Residence at Eton College (Leslie was the first poet so honored), the Cholmondeley prize for Poetry (considered the most prestigious prize awarded to poets in Great Britain), the Katherine Mansfield Triennial International Award (given every three years for the best short story written in English), BYU Humanities Professor of Creative Writing, Fellow of the Welsh Academy (Leslie was the first writer to be a fellow of both the Royal Society of Literature and the Welsh Academy), BYU Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award, and the Welsh Arts Council Senior Fiction Award.
