We always ask narrators how they get started with audiobooks. Sometimes an actor relishes their first assignment, and other times, it's a wonder they ever want to do another audio! New York-based actress Jennifer Van Dyck's first audio assignment was Monica Lewinsky's memoir that, because it was embargoed, had to be read cold—without preparation. After a couple of celebrity biographies, Jennifer has recently completed two projects with substance. PORT MUNGO is Patrick McGrath's colorful novel of a modern-day Gauguin that is nicely enhanced by Jennifer's treatment. In her reading of Elaine Pagel's BEYOND BELIEF: THE SECRET GOSPEL OF THOMAS , Jennifer was able to draw on her college major, Religious Studies, to inform her performance. Jennifer was also part of the ensemble performance of Michael Cunningham's A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD .
