    "Invaluable tales of mischief and wisdom, spirit and hope." ( Booklist)

    Description

    Every Tongue Got to Confess is an extensive volume of African American folklore that Zora Neale Hurston collected on her travels through the Gulf States in the late 1920s. The bittersweet and often hilarious tales, which range from longer narratives about God, the Devil, white folk, and mistaken identity to witty one-liners, reveal attitudes about faith, love, family, slavery, race, and community.

    Together, this collection of nearly 500 folktales weaves a vibrant tapestry that celebrates African American life in the rural South and represents a major part of Zora Neale Hurston's literary legacy.

    "With this new collection, Hurston provides an even greater sense of the black oral tradition, which demands appreciation and admiration." ( Library Journal)

    Excellent!

    Wonderful stories! Previous reviews rate poor sound quality. I disagree, I think it's clear. Volume is just a little low. I'm glad I decided to give it a chance. The stories are funny, poignant, sweet. They are treasures of our culture!

    Difficult to hear so I can't rate Story fairly

    Love Hurston's work- wish there was more out there to enjoy. However, the audio quality is terrible!!!! I love the narrators voices and have no trouble with the dialect; however, this is one of the only audible purchases I've had where I thought I should get a free credit or my mom bey back. I've tried turning up the volume on my iPhone 6, running it through my car speakers, etc. It sounds like garbled water.

    A delightful listen. Reminds me of my parents.

    I absolutely loved it!
    I'll listen to it again and again.
    I'll also share it.

    Great Book to listen to!

    I loved listening to Rubie Dee and Ossie Davis narrate this book. It was fun to listen to!

    A number of wonderfully performed stories .

    Must have more Audio books of Miss Zora.
    Listening help put voice and inflection to the work. Helpful when reading the books along. Must read.

    Excellent stories poor performance

    Zora's Folktales are magical and Ruby Dee is wonderful however Ozzie Davis was almost impossible to understand. With a different narrator this story deserves five stars.

    Great American writer as read authentically

    The greatest American acting couple on both stage and screen bring great authenticity to their readings of the great American novelist Zora Neale Huston's well researched reporting of many traditional American folktales and fables. I wish audible would offer Ossie Davis's reading of Muhammed Ali's literate autobiography Soul Of A Butterfly. Ruby Dee is warmly loved by all and their readings here open widely hearts and minds and souls.

    A simple smile

    I have heard most of the stories before in "Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick, but Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, bring the stories to life.

    A Wonderfully Eccentric Collection

    I used some of these tales in a folk tale and mythology section of a class I teach. I love the variety of the stories, as well as how they are organized in this collection. Definitely a book I will come back to every now and then...
