Neil Simon's life is not a comedy, but his personal memoirs will keep listeners bucked up by enough smiles and memories as he moves from play to play. Listeners will relate to Simon's benchmarks, THE ODD COUPLE and BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, as moments in their own lives. Simon's New York accent and mature voice sound exactly as you'd expect. He conveys an earnestness in his narration that reflects what he tells us--a willingness to please, to work cooperatively with his production teams to get things right. Simon is direct and clear, and gives a smooth delivery, even in what must have been a difficult narration of his wife, Joan's, battle with cancer. Listeners will delight in these highly personal memoirs. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
