Jess Walter and I sat down and talked about his podcast with his friend and fellow author Sherman Alexie, Beautiful Ruins, and how he’d feel if someone made him into a character in their novel.
We talked to actor and narrator Edoardo Ballerini about Beautiful Ruins, the differences between acting and narrating, and his dream audiobook gig.
Authors Sherman Alexie and Jess Walter are incredible storytellers. That alone is enough to want to hear their podcast, A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment. But Alexie and Walter also have amazing conversational chops and will keep you entertained for hours with witty banter, special performing guests, and intriguing stories from their own lives.
Beautiful Ruins is an ideal summer listen, with a little bit of romance, mystery, and adventure. Switching between 1962 Italy and 21st-century Hollywood, with a cast of quirky characters along the way, it’s easy to get swept up in the magic of Walter’s intertwining storylines. As our July Book of the Month, we’ll be talking about this great book all month long!
