What Can a Forgotten Ballerina Teach Us About TODAY? Germaine Shames

The book YOU, FASCINATING YOU by author Germaine Shames was previously reviewed  in  IMAGINEMAG (Click to read the review)

The author comments, `When I first began researching the ballet-themed novel YOU, FASCINATING YOU a decade ago, I could not have imagined that intolerance and scapegoating would permeate the highest levels of U.S. government and clearly signal what we as a nation are at risk of becoming.’

 

YOU, FASCINATING YOU shows what happens when intolerance goes unchallenged.

 

Punch Audio of Santa Monica, California has just released a brand new YOU, FASCINATING YOU. Why an audiobook? From the time YOU, FASCINATING YOU was first published in 2012, reviewers have noted its “cinematic quality.” A story this inherently dramatic cries out for performance. Susan Hanfield’s nuanced characterizations, impressive command of multiple languages and accents, and tireless commitment to excellence, bring scene after scene vividly to life.

 

“Having loved ballet all my life,” says Hanfield, “I found myself moved by Margit Wolf’s story and wanted to be a part of its telling. Margit was a woman of extraordinary talent who lived during an uncommonly dark time and never gave up despite the challenges she faced.”

 

Margit Wolf’s example has buoyed me through the long, and often trying, journey from inspiration to first draft, from paperback to e-Book, from audition to audiobook. Listening to this expertly produced and brilliantly narrated audio-saga, an emotion-packed twelve hours, I know it has all been worth it.
