MIRACLE AND WONDER Conversations with Paul Simon

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Malcom Gladwell, Paul Simon

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2021

This is one of the finest examples of audio autobiography/biography. Gleaned from 30 hours of conversation, the work features Paul Simon's exploration of his professional and private lives and songwriting itself. Author Malcolm Gladwell intersperses historical and biographical facts that give even greater context to the musician's comments. Together they break down the musical and thought processes that went into such legendary songs as "The Boxer" and "The Sound of Silence." Using tapes of actual conversations, including occasional background noise, adds to the reality and intimacy of this audio portrait. The work is a window on one individual and on the concept of musical genius. It truly is one of those "can't-turn-it-off" productions. R.C.G.
