Anyone who has ever heard me read from The Hundred-Foot Journey knows how much fun I have acting out the voices of the Haji family. Particularly Big Abbas, Hassan’s father, with all his characteristic bluster.
So I am thrilled that my US publisher, Scribner, has done a deal with Blackstone Audio to come out with the audio versions of both Buddhaland Brooklyn and The Hundred-Foot Journey. Anyone who wants to pre-ordeer can do so by going directly to Blackstone Audio or through the usual suspects like Amazon, Powell’s, or Barnes & Noble.
It looks like the MP3 CD and the 7 CD audio set of Buddhaland Brooklyn will be first up, the emergence of Reverend Seido Oda’s voice and narrative timed to coincide with the book’s US and Canada release on July 17th. The Hundred-Foot Journey appears set for a later release. Still, better late than never and very sweet news.
Can’t wait to find out which actors Blackstone are hiring to read my little books.
