The Breathing Method, from Stephen King's bestselling collecton Different Seasons, takes place in an exclusive gentlemen's club in New York, where no one pays any dues. Membership is based upon a telling of tales, and one nightmarish tale about a disgraced woman determined to give birth - not matter the consequences - pays for them all.

"Frank Muller lends a classic tone to King's labyrinthine tale of storytellers, climaxing in one very strange story. King's novelette, which originally appeared in the anthology DIFFERENT SEASONS, tells of a man drawn into an exclusive and timeless Manhattan gentlemen's club where the reality inside the brownstone has a more sinister edge than the world outside, and where the telling of stories is the primary activity of the club members. With grand formality and devilish intensity Muller narrates, both the story and the story-within-the-story: On a howling, bitter night just before Christmas, Dr. Emlyn McCarron recalls how, in the early 1930s, he helped an unmarried woman prepare for childbirth, and of the tragic consequences that followed. Muller presents the entire tale with ease and precision, drawing the listener to the fire to hear old McCarron recall his uncanny tale. This combination of Muller and King should be savored and enjoyed. S.E.S. & R.F.W. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
