Alison Larkin is much more than just a narrator

I loved loved loved Alison Larkin's book The English American which I came to after listening to her read other novels, mostly classics including Jane Austen. This is a charming interview which I was pleased to stumble on. Thank you Audible.

Alison Larking at her best

I've been a fan of Alison Larkin's narration for years, and was very pleasantly surprised to find this interview on Audible Originals. Alison's personal story is fascinating and she has done a lot of good by writing about it and talking openly about the issues of adoption and what adopted children feel and go through. But above all this interview is FUN. It is so interesting to learn how Alison is working on choosing voices for her characters, choosing the books to narrate, working through the whole process. Very pleased I've found this interview.
