Talking with Paul Hecht

Paul's long career in audiobooks spans dozens of titles and authors as varied as Ray Bradbury and Gore Vidal, Jack Finney and Thomas Mann. In this issue we also review Paul's recording of Bob Dole's ONE SOLDIER'S STORY and have recently delighted in his work with Alexander McCall Smith's PORTUGUESE IRREGULAR VERBS and AT THE VILLA OF REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES .
