THE TRAGEDY OF ARTHUR

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Aaron Baker

Fiction • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Twins Arthur and Dana have been immersed their entire lives in their father's obsession with Shakespeare. Now the literary ex-con claims to have discovered a lost Shakespeare play—THE TRAGEDY OF [KING] ARTHUR. But twin Arthur thinks the work is a forgery. His sister, Dana, on the other hand, deeply believes in her father. Portraying the skeptical twin, David Baker voices a cynical wit with a weary sardonic tone. He gives Dana a lighter voice and makes the story’s other characters sound distinctive as well. The novel is presented as a memoir by twin Arthur, which has been published as the "introduction" to the new play—which is also part of the book. The building suspense over the authenticity of the Shakespearean scholarship is accompanied by sharp jabs to the publishing industry. Baker’s fluency enhances a fascinating tale. A.W.
