THE BASSOON KING My Life in Art, Faith, and Idiocy

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rainn Wilson

Humor • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Whether or not listeners are fans of “The Office,” this memoir by the actor who played egomaniac Dwight Schrute is certain to brighten the drabbest of their days. Rainn Wilson narrates his own story with such perfection that the only disappointment is the fact that it ends. The memoir is smart, inspirational, and funny, so the addition of Wilson's performance adds delectable icing to a tasty cake. The myriad sounds of his life invoke laughter, reflection, and empathy. From astonishment to terror to gratitude, Wilson shares his experiences with a hilariously self-deprecating honesty that will endear him to listeners, significantly grow his fan base, and make the bassoon cool. Wilson ends his memoir with "10 Things I Know for Sure." Number 11 should be: This audiobook is a winner! J.F.
