Grisham kicks off the evening with a heartfelt reading of an excerpt from his blockbuster best seller The Summons. He's followed by Straub who captivates the audience with a hair-raising episode from Black House, the latest thriller he co-authored with Stephen King. King changes pace with a joyful reading of his classic short story The Revenge of Lardass Hogan. Finally, Conroy engages the audience in a hilarious chat on the art of writing.
A unique program that pays tribute to a true master craftsman, this audiobook is an unforgettable listening experience.

The Wavedancer Benefit
After hearing the amazing reading Frank Muller gave on "The Talisman" I looked for more of his work and found this benefit recording. Besides being a wonderful acknowledgement from the very authors whose books are narrated by Frank, it was great fun to hear some of the authors' voices for the first time (for me) reading their own works. Stephen King's rendition of "Lardass Hogan's Revenge" is hilarious, Peter Straub reading from "Black House" made me feel as if I was back in the book immediately, John Grishom's wonderful southern accent really flavored his reading of his most recent book, and just listening to Pat Conroy's commentary on himself, his brother-in-law, and his beginnings as an author made me crack up at moments and gave me goosebumps at others.
I would highly recommend this recording to anyone, it's uplifting to hear these authors, as well as the whole audience, come together to honor Frank Muller and his awesome achievements of work.

This is a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity...
...to listen to some of our greatest bestselling authors donate their time, talents and well-wishes to a wonderful cause.
Although this is not an actual "book," but rather a recording of the speakers at a dinner benefit for the Wavedancer Foundation; I am sure that you will find this audio choice extremely entertaining and heartfelt.
This was one hour and thirty six minutes well spent.
