"Phil, my dear boy, really -- what's the matter? Why don't you answer? Have you seen the eyes?"
An older gentleman invites a group of friends over for dinner and to discuss the supernatural. Afterwards, when only two guests remain, he tells them a story about The Eyes, about a man who is repeatedly haunted at night by a pair of grotesque eyes floating over the foot of his bed.
'The Eyes' is a short, sharp read that slowly enters your psyche and leaves you with a paragraph that may haunt you forever, because it's not about ghosts at all... Elegantly eerie and similarily atmospheric, this Edith Wharton story makes a great companion to Henry James' 'The Turn of the Screw' (1898).
B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
Edith Wharton was an American author and designer, born into New York City's high society. She is best known for her novel 'The Age of Innocence' (1920) and for being the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Literature.
