Talking with Virginia Leishman

By virtue of her precise British accent and her lyricism (she considers herself more a composer and musician than a thespian), Virginia sounds elegantly Victorian. Indeed, her breath control and phrasing superbly express the ornate diction of that era's prose. She explains, "It's because I was born and raised in an old-fashioned way in England, as the child of an American mother and a British diplomat. When I read, I revert to the way I was read to as a child." She's successfully revived THE RAILWAY CHILDREN and other titles by E. Nesbit. She parses phrases carefully for nuance, and flavors dialogue with personality and spontaneity, as exemplified in her rendition of A.S. Byatt's POSSESSION .--2001 Narrator Yearbook
