Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In luminous, warm tones, Karin Konoval offers an outsider's perspective of visiting New Orleans during 2013 while filming DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Konoval's memoir focuses on her impressions of the iconic city itself, rather than the challenges of her film role as an orangutan. Her voice becomes hushed and reverent while observing Casey, the majestic gorilla at the Audubon Zoo who develops a deep attachment to her. The listener hears Konoval's breathy exhilaration as she walks into an impromptu dance line in the French Quarter and the tremor that slips into her steady pacing when a bayou boat tour gets her up close to wild alligators. With light attempts at Southern accents, Konoval gives listeners a tantalizing peek at the heart of The Big Easy. E.E. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
