Anna Deavere Smith is a working actor, respected teacher, nationally known playwright, and recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant. LETTERS TO A YOUNG ARTIST is an interesting, humorous, practical, and profound series of letters she wrote to a young artist over a five-year period. Every bit of the author’s own life experiences is brought into this insightful audio presentation. Read by the author in a wry and touching tone, the production has a narrative style that is relaxed and direct. The vocal characterizations are so well done that it’s easy to visualize each character. For an artist of any age, the advice is indispensable. This audio presentation is worth listening to again and again. M.R.E. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
