Writers should want to have their books heard as well as read, according to Mr. Guidall. “It expands the author’s intent, brings it into an immediacy. I am the author when I’m doing it. I’m a literary hermit crab finding a home in someone else’s imagined truth.”

Thanks Winston. Nice insights (and What a clear and flexible voice he has for a 79 year old. )

Best,
