P.J. Ochlan on Lawn Boy

Settle back in your favorite lawn chair as AudioFile goes Behind the Mic with P.J. Ochlan, who he shares his experience narrating LAWN BOY by Jonathan Evison.

“One of the challenges here was in portraying the massive cast of characters . . . that’s something I always love to embrace, just diving in and fully committing to characters that have these big, broad personalities.”—Narrator P.J. Ochlan

Lawn Boy

AudioFile Earphones Award

Evison’s novel comes alive as an audiobook because of narrator P.J. Ochlan’s ability to create unique voices for each of the characters. At its core, it’s a coming-of-age story featuring Mike Muñoz, a Chicano landscaper who is seeking a break in a society that is seemingly stacked against him. Ochlan gives life to Evison’s extraordinary voices and dramatizes the situations the characters find themselves in.
