Talking with Sean Barrett

"Sean is one of the most remarkable readers in England," says Naxos Audiobooks' Nicolas Soames, who has produced Sean reading three works of world literature- BLEAK HOUSE , Haruki Murakami's KAFKA ON THE SHORE , and Samuel Beckett's WAITING FOR GODOT . Nicolas says Sean walks for an hour in the early morning through the streets of London to the studio: "He reads impeccably, then quietly walks home again, the traffic raging around him. No one would guess the marvels of literature he has just been producing." Yet, with characteristic reserve, Sean tells AudioFile, "Acting is telling a story. The author gives you the characters." Dickens characters may be clearly and broadly drawn, giving a narrator plenty of clues, but Murakami and Beckett offer up infinitely complex people who are not so easy. Sean seems to find their essence. Soames praises Sean's Nakata, Murakami's cat-finder, as "one of the great characters in the last decade." AudioFile reviews also celebrat Sean's "rich characterizations" and his ability to keep a blend of the real and surreal "totally engrossing."
