Publisher's Summary

Nick Owchar, the former deputy book editor of the Los Angeles Times calls Gethsemane: An Epic Poem About Us, "Emotional, wow, brilliant, disorienting, risky" in a review he gave of the book in June, 2014. He goes on to write, "At times, I was reminded of the voices of different books of the Bible, of eastern/Orient poets like (Rabindranath) Tagore and Kahlil Gibran or Rumi. The imagery is very evocative of them."

This masterwork of R. Douglas Jacobs now arrives as an ambitious audio book, produced and narrated by the author, himself, and is homage to one of his iconic influences, Orson Welles. Entitled, Gethsemane: The Radio Theatre Experience, this dramatized adaptation features a marvelous cast of actors, sound effects, and an original, baroque score to accompany the narrative. The structure of this eclectic production is reminiscent of popular playhouse presentations during the "Golden Age of Radio." As a result, Gethsemane: The Radio Theatre Experience is unlike any audio book yet to be produced given all the theatrical elements that bring the story to life and makes the experience of listening all the more indelible.
