Why don't more authors read us their books?

Would you consider the audio edition of The New Yorker Festival to be better than the print version?

No, not at all. But it was good. Now let me ask a serious question. Why don't more authors like Annie Proulx read their own books? Wouldn't you love to hear "To Kill a Mocking Bird" read by Ms Harper Lee? Annie and Junot Diaz give us a taste of what it's like to hear the work in the authors voice. That alone was well worth the price of this book, but the Q and A after was worth twice the asking price. Bravo

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

With the author's voice I'd never turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Please ask Annie to read more of her work for Audible and for us.
