"Daisy Miller" by Henry James. Read by Tammy Grimes. Listen for Pleasure. The James novel, which became one of Peter Bogdanovich's most sensitive films, had Cybill Shepherd as the outspoken and flirtatious American heiress confronting and ignoring the stuffy strictures of upper-crust European society in the late 19th Century. The American who loves her from too far afar understands the society so well that it renders him powerless. James' small, ironic tragedy of social differences, skillfully abridged by Serena Helps, gets a fine and subtle reading from Tammy Grimes, whose low, knowing and mid-Atlantic voice is perfect for the text. On two cassettes. Information: (800) 843-8404. ****
