Tom Hollander will be reading the audiobook version of John Le Carré’s ‘A Legacy of Spies’ which is due for release in September.
Lovely news reached Team Hollander towers yesterday, from Penguin Books who shared the above tweet on Twitter. You can pre-order Tom Hollander reading ‘A Legacy of Spies’ here, from Audible UK.
Tom recently won a BAFTA for his role in Le Carré’s The Night Manager so it seems rather fitting that he’s doing the reading duties. Below you can find out more information about some of the other audio books that Tom’s read and a selection of tweets from people who’ve clearly enjoyed his excellent work.
Although this quote is about voice-overs rather than audiobooks I thought it was interesting nonetheless: “I really love voice-overs; I love the concentration and the detail of a voice-over because it’s very technical. It’s like if you were a painter and you had to do a line drawing as an exercise. I suppose it’s quite intimate too. And it’s very pure, yeah. It’s just you and a script and you have to bring some sort of humanity to it so that the audience listening can connect with it. I’ve enjoyed that a lot recently.”
