THE DEATH OF TRUTH: A Rousing Call to Action

In AudioFile’s latest visit Behind the Mic, we hear from narrator Tavia Gilbert as she shares insights on narrating Michiko Kakutani’s significant new work, THE DEATH OF TRUTH: Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump. Tavia challenges us to listen, to protest, and to think about what we can do.

“This is a rousing call to action.”—Narrator Tavia Gilbert

Tavia Gilbert narrates with a sure sense of this book’s importance, and her performance suits the intent of its thought-provoking treatise on how and why truth and reason are vanishing from our national politics and discourse. Listen to a sound sample and read AudioFile’s full review.
