    Story

    In the picturesque village of Guzmán, Spain, in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town, an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room”. Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches, this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets - usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine. It was here, in the summer of 2000, that Michael Paterniti found himself listening to a larger-than-life Spanish cheesemaker named Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras as he spun an odd and compelling tale about a piece of cheese.

    What made the experience of listening to The Telling Room the most enjoyable?

    The author bounces back and forth between history lessons and present day stories and then ties them together flawlessly.


    Have you listened to any of L.J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't; but this one was very good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it would have been too long.


    Any additional comments?

    I would say this ranks in the top 5 books I've ever "read." It may even be number one. I found myself very emotionally involved. The writing was brilliant and the reader was very talented.
