THE FISHER KING

by | Read by Robin Miles

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

First, this is not the movie story starring Robin Williams, though the idea of protecting a wounded king figure is central. In this case, the king is jazz pianist Sonny-Rett Payne from Brooklyn, and the protector is his family, which is itself in need of protection from family strife. Robin Miles is an intelligent and versatile narrator who convinces with her plethora of dialects, foreign and domestic, while her standard English speech is equally beautiful to listen to. Marshall's writing communicates an elegant and musical subtext (evocative of jazz itself), which Miles performs with confidence and clarity. This book was made for oral interpretation. P.W.
