    From London’s glittering West End to Broadway’s bright lights, from her Academy Award-winning role as Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love to “M” in the James Bond films, Judi Dench has treated audiences to some of the greatest performances of our time.

    Story

    This is a memoir mostly of Judi Dench's career, with a reasonable bit of family background and an epilogue describing her warmup ritual. It zips by, with much of the time spent listing the casts of plays she performed in. (She must have saved all the playbills.) You'll learn about her friendships with other actors and her experiences receiving awards and accolades. You can even try to read between the lines as she describes her work as M in the Bond films. There are a couple of paragraphs about her work on “As Time Goes By,” but probably not enough for fans of that series. All in all, it's light and personable and will add to your enjoyment of her work. It's not a tell-all or a master class in acting.

  • Travels with Charley in Search of America

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 58 mins)

    In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America, from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

    Story

    Gary Sinese brings both grit and subtlety to his reading of Steinbeck's colorful travel memoir. I listened to this as a vicarious summer getaway; it's a journey I won't soon forget. Steinbeck’s portrait of Texas and Texans remains spot-on, and the whole account is utterly believable. Mostly lyrical and personal, in its final chapters the book re-inserts the author into current events, where he becomes a deliberate witness to history.

    With author and narrator in perfect synch, this audio book was a thorough pleasure, inspiring me to look back on my own travels in America, and forward to the destinations still to come. Recommended for anyone with wanderlust – from adolescents to shut-ins.
