The good people over at Vulture have published a crazy and remarkable conversation between our very own Jeff VanderMeer and Bronson Pinchot (yes, THAT Bronson Pinchot) about the fine art of audiobook narration.
You probably know Pinchot best from the sitcom Perfect Strangers (not to mention his work in Risky Business and Beverly Hills Cop), but did you know that the guy is also a certified audiobook-reading legend? He’s performed over a hundred books, including Flannery O’Connor’s Everything That Rises Must Converge and, of course, VanderMeer’s Authority. He’s also a terrific conversationalist, touching on everything from Tess of the D’Urbervilles to chocolate M&M’s.
VanderMeer is an author who takes care and pride in his audiobook adaptations, and book readers are rarely so dedicated to the craft as Pinchot (the man’s got a philosophy, after all: don’t read the book, “be the book”). So put the Phil Collins on pause and download Bronson Pinchot’s audio rendition of Authority.
