A Marvelous Reading of My Book

As the author of Charles Addams: A Cartoonist's Life, I am not an unprejudiced listener, but I am a tough one to please. I listened to the words I wrote with shameless pleasure: such is Don Hagen's wonderfully rich voice and superb reading. I could not have read it nearly as well myself and would hesitate to read it to anyone after hearing Hagen. He has brought new life to this old book (published in 2006) and much pleasure to the author. I feel very lucky that he was the reader of this book--my last and favorite child of the three biographies I wrote.
