What’s New from Alison Larkin
Alison featured & interviewed in Rural Intelligence, The Rural We: Alison Larkin, sharing how she made her way to the Berkshires.
Praise for Alison Larkin’s narration of Emma: “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.”
A rave review in Publishers Weekly!

“The English American is a funny, charming and poignant book — the kind that you can’t resist reading in a single day.” —Chicago Sun Times
Springing from her internationally acclaimed one woman show, in her hilarious, poignant first novel, Anglo-American writer/comedian Alison Larkin draws further from her experiences as an adopted English woman who finds her birth parents — and a new homeland — in the United States and weaves them into a compulsively readable work of fiction.
