Audiobook Recommendation: Fauci by Michael Specter, Read by the Author
An Audio Profile of Dr. Fauci
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Journalist Michael Specter’s throaty voice and emotional yet precise delivery perfectly suit his examination of the coronavirus pandemic and the man who is trying to save us from it. AudioFile’s Robin Whitten and host Jo Reed discuss Fauci, the biography based on Specter’s profile of Dr. Anthony Fauci for The New Yorker. The gripping audio production blends interviews with Fauci (and Fauci’s wife, Christine Grady, a bioethicist with the NIH), historical audio clips and news reports, and a fact-filled narrative that captures the listener’s attention as effectively as a suspense novel. This time, however, the terrifying plot points are real.
