Narrator Jim Meskimen on THE NEW EARTH

Narrator Jim Meskimen tells AudioFile readers about narrating THE NEW EARTH by Jess Row, which he co-narrated along with eleven other narrators. The novel features a troubled family full of different viewpoints and different problems, and the ensemble narration makes each character feel well-rounded and compelling.

"You know when you can't put a book down? For narrators, sometimes you can't leave the booth, you just want to keep reading and see what's happening."—Narrator Jim Meskimen

A work of metafiction, this novel breaks down the fourth wall as the complex plot moves forward.
