Emma by Jane Austen

Announcing the 200th Anniversary
audiobook edition of Emma by Jane Austen

Narrated by AudioFile Earphones Award-winning Alison Larkin

“I understood what Larkin was doing. Raised in England by adoptive parents, Alison Larkin was actually born in America. She herself is a comic writer and performer – and she approaches Austen as a satirist – she has genuine theatrical skill, so her Mrs. Elton, swooping and dipping in flights of arrogant self-serving nonsensical observation, and her Miss Bates, anxious and desperately self-conscious even as she talks without end, are both sustained comic creations. The voice reveals all.”
—David Denby, The New Yorker

“There’s a vintage feel to Alison Larkin’s narration of this Austen favorite. The bell-like quality of her sweetly accented voice harkens back to another, quieter, time. However, her delivery of this much-loved matchmaking story offers a flexibility that is contemporary and easy to hear. Larkin’s vocals can be precious or blustery, proper or pompous, depending on which character she occupies, and she creates distinctions between each with skill. The pace is brisk, and Larkin’s treatment of the light humor in the novel is so subtle it could be missed by the distracted listener. Jaunty musical interludes grace the transitions between chapters, adding to the quaint charm of this production.”
Audiofile Review

Following the runaway success of her stunning rendition of Pride and Prejudice, award-winning narrator Alison Larkin returns—breathing new life into Jane Austen’s Emma. Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the book, Larkin—a witty and always original voice— is the perfect vessel to bring this classically satirical novel to a new audience. A fresh and hugely entertaining listen Larkin, also an acclaimed comedienne and the bestselling author of The English American, joins her voice deftly with Austen’s clever style and the result is pure boundless FUN.
