The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde grew out of a horrifying nightmare Robert Louis Stevenson had one night in Bournemouth, England in 1886. The Yellow Wallpaper sprang from a catastrophic nervous breakdown Charlotte Perkins Gilman had six years later on the other side of the Atlantic following the birth of her daughter.
Now these two haunting, iconic tales are brought together for the first time in this powerful classic audio exploration of madness and the duality of the human soul.
