I THOUGHT MY FATHER WAS GOD And Other True Tales From NPR's National Story Project

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Paul Auster

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

In 1999, author Paul Auster invited listeners to submit stories to National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered." Not just any stories-- they had to be true stories that were so amazing that they sounded like fiction. Now, many of the more than 5,000 stories submitted have been collected into a uniquely magical audiobook. His smoky baritone voice giving constancy to the wide-ranging tales, Auster paces his reading to let the stories surprise and move us. A couple brought together by the inspection sticker in the man's sport coat, a chicken that walks itself through Manhattan--improbable, hilarious, miraculous--these stories are the stuff of life. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
