Hey! I Know That Voice

Admirers of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham eagerly await his new works. In 2014, Cunningham delighted his fans with The Snow Queen, a darkly luminous novel that follows the Meeks brother as each travels down a different path in his search for transcendence.

For audiobook listeners, the program contained an added bonus – narration by actress Claire Danes. That familiar voice is the same heard on Homeland and in starring roles in films including Romeo and Juliet, The Hours, and Temple Grandin. Bookpage said Danes narrated The Snow Queen “gracefully” and O Magazine called it “quintessential New York listening.” Listen to a sample here.

Like what you hear? Danes also narrated The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
