CAVEAT EMPTOR The Secret Life of an American Art Forger

by | Read by Dan Butler

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Even if you know nothing about fine art, Dan Butler's superb performance will bring this complex and sometimes shady world to life. His sensitive delivery of Ken Perenyi's poignant memoir of life as a liar and thief makes it hard not to like this consummate scam artist in spite of it all--unless, of course, you paid an exorbitant price for one of his fakes. Butler's easy reading style carries the narrative flawlessly, with occasional forays into excitement and danger where the going gets tight for Perenyi. At those points he ratchets up the emotional wattage just enough to keep you on the edge. This is a thoroughly competent delivery using only Butler's native voice--but what a voice.
