In today’s episode, host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss Stefan’s narration of Joseph Conrad’s The Rover. This is Conrad’s last complete work, the story of a French sailor who, having spent the last fifty years of his life roaming the seas, returns home to France in the aftermath of the Revolution. Listeners can hear how Rudnicki’s resonant voice meanders through all the picturesque descriptions of the countryside and intuitively reflects the natural cadence of Conrad’s prose.
