Dressing Up for the Carnival cruises through a diverse set of players at different stages of life, most of whom — like the interconnected cast of characters in the title story — fortify themselves in symbolic ways to tackle the business of life. Shields observes, indulges, and shares their small secrets, injecting them by turns with pathos, humour, and the occasional wink.

This special audio collection features five stories from the collection, including "Soup de Jour" and the title story. Narrated by Caymar Chai, Patricia Drake, Bridgette O'Sullivan, William Samples, and Donna White.
