I am very pleased and proud to announce that the epic recording of War & Peace which I directed during Lockdown, superbly performed by Thandiwe Newton, has won the 2023 ‘Audie’ Award for Best Literary/Classic Fiction recording of the year. We put our hearts and souls into this production, which we recorded remotely during Lockdown, sometimes even working together on different continents. 32 studio days, 560 characters and 1,358 pages later, it is very gratifying to have our hard work saluted by our professional peers. Thank you all very much!
