    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Overall

    This audio book is moving, funny, thought provoking, immensely entertaining and brilliantly narrated.

    Alison Larkin is as gifted a narrator as she is an author. A visit to her website shows why. A classically trained Broadway actress before she became a novelist, Larkin also made a name for herself doing cartoons and voice-overs in Los Angeles, She also narrated audio books for Disney. Her American accents are impeccable and the performance superb.

    It's a wonderful book. Deep but funny and accessible, covering an important subject with compassion, wisdom and humor. We end up loving Pippa Dunn even more than we did at the beginning, and learning more about ourselves in the process. It's been a long time since I heard an audio book that made me laugh and cry at the same time. And I don't even have any personal connection to the subject matter!

    Alison Larkin and her novel are uniquely entertaining. Will appeal to people who like to listen to a terrific story. You have to know what happens next.

    This is my first review. I had to write it because this book really deserves to be acknowledged for what it is. Something different. Something special. Something you won't forget in a hurry.

    This one is a keeper, not just because of the writing, but also because of its perofrmance. A tour de force by an outstandingly gifted narrator.

    i see she's narrating the Arthur Ransom series. I'd like to hear more books narrated by Alison - American, British, it doesn't matter what. This author/narrator is the real deal. More please!
