This recording of an evening at Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club features a delightful discussion between authors Susanna Clarke and Neil Gaiman, which took place shortly after the release of Clarke's sensational debut, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. After a long dramatic reading from the book by actress Cristina Pickles, Gaiman and Clarke discuss their first meeting many years ago, Clarke's 10-year process writing the book, her diverse influences, and her disdain for distinctions between high and low culture. With thought-provoking questions from the audience, this is sure to be a treat for fans of these beloved authors.

If you are a fan of either of Gaiman or Clarke's, you will treasure this interview. Plus a nice reading of the first episode in York Cathedral.
"Lies, lies and more lies ..."
For a start it's NOT and audio book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It sounds like somebody rehearsing in the bathroom .
Trade descriptions act ... I want my money back and Audible can gets stuffed.
"This is misleading. This is not an audiobook!"
I expected this to be a reading of "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norriss" by Susanna Clarke but it is just a long and boring interview of the author.
I wanted to purchase an audio reading of the book to correlate with the Kindle version that I purchased from Amazon.
Almost anyone would have been acceptable to narrate this if only it had been an audio version of the book as advertised.
I'm sure I would love this book, if only it was the audio version to correlate with the Kindle version that I purchased along with it.
I am incensed by the lack of efficiency, made worse by customer service staff that can't read complaints. Having received my complaint about this book being not as advertised (in fact not a book at all!) my email wasn't even properly read and I have had one of my paid for books removed without my consent, while this drivelling interview recording remains in my library!
