M.R. James at Christmas

Derek Jacobi plays Montague Rhodes James and is our narrator for these five brief dramatized contemporary audio adaptations. Though well worth a listen in their own right, they are simply too short to capture the mood of James' prose. Ripping yarns for the time poor if you will.
