A Winter Journal Extra!
Just recently, I was simply raving about Paul Auster’s recent piece of work, Winter Journal. That was me, exuberantly flinging recommendations to anyone who would listen.
The lovely folks at Macmillan Audio shared this great clip with me to, in turn, share with you lovely folks. I do love teamwork!
Whether you’re an Audio Book fan, an Auster fan, a book lover or any combination of the three, check out the video, below. It’s read by Auster, in studio. Because it’s read by its maker, you know that the reflections are told to the tune of the author’s exact intent (the lack of which has always been a huge turn off to me in relation to audio books).
The video hits on the more somber tones woven through the book but don’t be completely fooled; there are lighter moments, romantic moments and some hilarious moments sure to embarrass you in whatever quite, albeit public, reading place you’ve managed to park yourself in.
