Behind the Mic: The Abundance

AudioFile asked narrator Susan Ericksen to go Behind the Mic to tell us about her experience narrating Dillard’s carefully chosen and juxtaposed essays collected in THE ABUNDANCE.

“The collection is in a class by itself—so artistically crafted and poetically written.” -Susan Ericksen

We are fans of Annie Dillard’s luminous essays that mix keen observation, spirituality, history, and lyrical storytelling. This collection from the author of TEACHING A STONE TO TALK and PILGRIM AT TINKER CREEK gives an abundance of thoughtful, engaging listening on such an array of topics. Listen to a sound clip and read our full review here.
