Wally Lamb Testimonial

What a lucky author I was when George Guidall performed my second novel, I Know This Much Is True. Guidall understood and became my characters: a man suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, his resentful yet faithful twin brother, a wise Indian psychotherapist, an arrogant Sicilian immigrant speaking from the grave. Guidall’s interpretations were nuanced, humane, knowing, and pitch-perfect. When I completed The Hour I First Believed, I insisted that only George Guidall should perform the audio. Guidall’s are not so much narrations as bravura performances.  – Wally Lamb

George Guidall’s insights into character portrayal are preternatural. His instincts for pacing are the best bar none. When I listen to George read my work, I listen to the voice that was inside my head when I wrote the words. It’s a joy, an honor, and uncanny to have him as the interpreter of my books.
– David Robbins
