Talking with Michael Jayston

Michael views the basis of an actor's life as telling a story, and the natural extension is the aural experience of audiobooks. It helps when authors have a great story to tell, and some narrators get the plum titles. Michael has recorded two British authors who are American favorites, John le Carré and P.D. James. Recently Michael's recording of The CONSTANT GARDENER by le Carré picked up an Earphones Award, adding to the accolades for his handling of the British spymaster's works. Le Carré "never cheats," Michael told us, giving the narrator an enviable challenge. Neither does Michael, who expresses the subtlety and complexity of stories without giving anything away. We also appreciate the dozen recordings of Alexander Kent's (Douglas Reeman) naval fiction.--[2001 Narrator Yearbook]
