by | Read by Derek Perkins

Biography & Memoir • 31.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Derek Perkins narrates this biography of the author of GULLIVER'S TRAVELS with a distinguished air befitting a historical figure who genuinely wanted improve the culture he was living in. Listeners will enjoy the excitement and intrigue of Swift's world while also appreciating Perkins's matter-of-fact delivery. One is transported back to the early eighteenth century to discover that the problems and cultural issues of the time were not dissimilar to those we deal with today. Perkins is on par with his more famous literary subject as he describes with seeming ease and enjoyment a most interesting period in English life and literature.
