Booklist “Voice of Choice” Graham in NYT Freebie


Congratulations to Booklist “Voice of Choice” Dion Graham – for the 1st time the NY Times Magazine has a fiction piece, along with the complete audio online, on its cover: “We Like You So Much and Want to Know You Better,” an adaptation from The Circle the new novel by Dave Eggers. I spoke with Dion about his relationship with Eggers in a column titled “Their Lives, Their Words, My Voice” just after Graham was named the 2012 Booklist “Voice of Choice.” Graham’s a busy guy, from his work with the Pa’s Hat Foundation in Liberia, to his upcoming release Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and The World That Made Him by David Henry & Joe Henry. If you’ve never listened to this superlative narrator, grab this 45 minute download for free!
