The Dancing Girls by Edna Ferber (1885 - 1968) .

This project is complete and all audio files can be found at http://librivox.org/the-dancing-girls-by-edna-ferber/
The Dancing Girls is just one of the 4 excellent short stories in this recording. All written by the master, Edna Ferber for magazines between 1910 and 1919 they naturally contain her unique mix of real people, sadness, joy and always humor. The lead Story, The Dancing Girls, is my favorite for the way she paints a picture of mid America small town society and how good people somehow (and sometimes) can find their way to each other. Other stories in this collection are Old Lady Mandel; Long Distance; and One Hundred Percent (Summary by Phil Chenevert)
  • Target completion date: 2013-Jan-01
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14714
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Phil,
I never read anything by Edna Ferber. May I dpl for you?
Stav.
P.S. As Edna Ferber was american, this book is pd for me according to the rule of the shorter turm. I advise you to add a note to the summary about the copyright status of this book according to the rule (pd in the UK but not in Canada and Australia.)
Love gothic novels? Try Children Of The Abbey. Like surprising mysteries? Try The Amathist Cross. Looking for an easy read? Try Harriet's Choice.

thank you Stav, I would love to have you DPL. Edna Ferber wrote Showboat and Giant (notPD) that most people know her by. Her many short stories though are PD. By the way, I may be tinkering with this project a bit and remove one or more of the stories but that is no problem for you.

Welcome aboard !

I figured that you wanted it done soon and I have some free time between projects, so why not! The ending to Dancing Girls was interesting! I guess things were not the same for them after the war. Going back to the same old thing held no appeal to them. I like these stories.

Yes, i was eager to move some of my projects off my list; I've been at my max for awhile.

About the ending, I loved her ambiguity but felt that the now worldly wise two young people would reject the superficial and expected route and instead seek each other out. But that may be just my need for a romantic happy ending.

I am going to do four or five more of Ferber's lesser known stories in the near future; I like her writing, it just flows. g

Gee, ain't this fun??? !! Image
