Oh. My. God. I’ve just listened to the clips and Michael is ASTONISHING. The range, the pace, the characterisation, the comedy! To go from Travis to Jake to Aleksandr Bykov with such steady brilliance — the audiobook is going to be like a showcase of Michael’s gifts and it enhances my novel perfectly. Congratulations. I’m blown away already. This is GOLD standard and everyone will recognise it.

“This was my first time reading the Bard since last summer—and it was wonderful to realize how much of our lessons with you was still with me. I found the whole experience very transformative”

I’ve been listening to Dracula on my iPad – good stuff!  Indeed, I’ve had to turn it down a few times, so blood-curdling were the screams…

Tamsin Collison’s libretto is brilliant: simple, elegant, noble words, well-phrased and well-set, and I enjoyed every one of them.

The opera is short and the libretto is accordingly lean, but she deftly creates character and sets tone in a small space: it is intensely satisfying, rather like a great short story.
