Great news for all you audiophiles: June is Audiobook Month! We can't think of a better way to kick it off than by celebrating Billy Crystal's Audie Award wins, including Audiobook of the Year, for STILL FOOLIN' 'EM!
The audiobook for REVIVER by Seth Patrick, narrated by Ari Flakos also won an Audie Award in the Paranormal category.
John Waters read the audiobook for CARSICK, a hilarious recounting of how he hitchhiked from Baltimore to San Francisco in 2012 told in three novellas—good rides, bad rides, and the real ride. Esquire.com ran a fabulous piece, and both the Sacramento Bee and the Los Angeles Times gave it nice mentions.
Downton Abbey. Homeland. Sex and the City. What do these popular television shows have in common with our friends at Macmillan Audio? Our favorite actors from each will soon be narrating our audio books too!
Ron Livingston, best known for his roles in Office Space, Band of Brothers and Sex and the City, will be narrating Lisa Scottoline's KEEP QUIET.
Click here to listen to a clip of Livingston’s narration.
Claire Danes, currently starring as Carrie Matheson on Homeland, is also known for her roles in My So-Called Life, Romeo & Juliet, and HBO’s Temple Grandin. She'll be narrating Michael Cunningham's THE SNOW QUEEN. Entertainment Weekly's Shelf Life blog did a feature with an exclusive clip of Danes’s narration. (Fun fact: Danes’s husband, Hugh Dancy, narrated Cunningham's last audiobook, BY NIGHTFALL!)
Dan Stevens, best known for his role on Downton Abbey, is doing double-duty by narrating a couple of Homer's classics: THE ILIAD and THE ODYSSEY. Once again, EW's Shelf Life was on the case with a feature story.
