If MP were to do audio-books of other authors' works, what would you like to hear him read? Hemingway comes easily to mind. Having just read "Middlemarch" by George Eliot, I think MP would capture her wonderful, ironic tone just perfectly!

Dickens, Kipling, Salinger.. that would be fun.. :)
Re: Aural S** by sminobe on 18 May 2004 11:12pm
Ah, Kipling! Just to hear MP intone, "Best Beloved"... *sigh!*

Aural S**, indeed!

Something more erotic. Henry Miller perhaps. "Leaves of Grass" maybe.

Heh...yeah, when it comes right down to it, I'd probably buy a recording of him reading the phone book. I just love his voice. :)

Blake, Browning, Tennyson, Shelley, or any other British romantic poet.

Or maybe just some Nabokov ;)

Personally, i used to drive to the beach when it got really hot out and listen to the Stones on one radio and Palin talking about his adventures in the frozen parts of Russia on another. It was like sexy, informative air conditioning.
