Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

Of all the narrators who have tried to grasp the wayward wit and glorious vision of Nobel laureate Steinbeck, Ron McLarty is the best. In his reading of Steinbeck’s road-trip memoir “in search of America,” McLarty captures the tone of the author, as well as the voices and accents of the people he and his blue poodle meet along the way. From taciturn Mainers and French-Canadian farmers to crass New Yorkers, Texas ranchers and caballeros, McLarty captures them all with the appropriate regional accent. It’s worth noting that this recording lends itself especially well to listening on the road: Steinbeck’s observations about America and the nature of travel make for enlightening roadway philosophy.
