AudioFile Mag | 1784 comments Thanks Grumpus. Hi Everyone, Aurelia here. We at AudioFile, and John, are looking forward to his visit on the 15th and 16th. As Jeanie says, a Valentine's Day present! Here's more about John and his work: http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/narr....

Get ready. On the morning of the 15th, you can set about asking those questions and making comments! More soon. :)

AudioFile Mag | 1784 comments Aurelia here. In anticipation of chatting with John when he visits next Wednesday (15th) and Thursday (16th), I wanted to share a few of my favorites of his more recent performances. John is really popular for mysteries, literary fiction, and huge long histories (stamina!) among other genres.

I loved his presentation of Elizabeth George's mystery A Banquet of Consequences. (http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/revi....) As well as Alex Gerlis's The Best of Our Spies, for which the reviewer gave him an Earphones Award. (http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/revi....) And Andrew Roberts' thoroughly involving biography Napoleon: A Life. (http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/revi...)

AudioFile Mag | 1784 comments Aurelia here. As we wait for John Lee's visit with us tomorrow, I thought I'd share the review for his recent Earphones Award winning performance of A Strangeness in My Mind by Orhan Pamuk: http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/revi....

John has narrated (and won rave reviews for) several of Pamuk's novels, giving listeners a sense of continuity despite the books' varied settings and topics.

Looking forward to more tomorrow!

John Lee | 18 comments Looking forward to everyone's questions. Though I try not to favor one book over another publicly I do have a special fondness for Pahmuk.
