Summary

How a fishmonger's son from Tyneside, growing up in the 1950s with a Geordie accent, become the person who recorded more than 900 audiobooks and received an MBE from the queen in the Birthday Honours of 2017. This 'charming', 'entertaining' and 'heart-warming' memoir answers that question.

Critic reviews

"Not simply a reader but an artist of the spoken word." (Audiofile Magazine)

"Gordon Griffin, an entire acting company in one person." (Audiofile Magazine)

“Witty and moving memoir of how a working-class boy becomes the voice of the spoken word. Honest and vivid account plus excellent advice for those of us who work with words.” (Miriam Margolyes)
