Can You Hear Me Now?

If you prefer getting my novels in audiobook form (as apparently most of you do) then it might be time to break out the yesca and cerveza. Fifty Grand will be available from May 1 as a talking book from Blackstone Audio and your friendly neighbourhood Amazon and shortly thereafter The book is narrated by Paula Christensen who I think is this Paula Christensen (right) an actress from Buenos Aires, a city I visited last year, mainly because of its connections to Jorge Luis Borges. JLB is a prose idol of mine who also turned some of my favourite quotes including: "Humiliation, unhappiness, discord are the ancient foods of heroes," and "the flattery of posterity is worth about the same as contemporary flattery which is worth absolutely nothing." Good old Jorge. If you want to hear a sample of Paula's excellent narration then click here.
