Publisher's Summary

On February 2, 2002, Stephen King, Pat Conroy, John Grisham, and Peter Straub gathered at New York's Town Hall for a very special evening. These four best selling authors stepped up to the microphone to raise money for one of the most recognizable voices in audiobooks, Frank Muller, an actor who sustained terrible injuries from a motorcycle accident. Muller, who has recorded hundreds of novels, including many by these authors, may never work again.This once-in-a-lifetime event is captured here, and 100% of all profits will be donated to The Wavedancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports Frank Muller and other artists who fall prey to illness or injury and can no longer perform.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.Browse the Frank Muller page.

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... 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.

A good listen, not a 'story' as such and not too long but nice and interesting with some comedy despite being for a sad cause.
