Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad

The Going Public ... in Shorts Series
By M. R. James
Narrated by Susan Ericksen / 53 minutes

M. R. James was a prolific and hugely successful author, now credited with redefining the ghost story form. By abandoning many of the formal gothic cliches of his predecessors and using more contemporary settings, James set the stage for future generations of writers. Originally published in 1904, "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad" is the story of a man who digs up a bronze whistle, which, after blowing it, leads to unexpected consequences. Haunting yet realistic, "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad" ranks among his best and most underrated tales.Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
