Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance combines a clear and resonant voice with an ear for language as he narrates Teju Cole’s essay collection, Known and Strange Things. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss these essays that wander the world from New York City to Gaza, Europe to South America. Cole reacts to literature and politics, but his finest work is surely on photography. Frenandez’s gift for mimicry is apparent as he voices many great luminaries quoted in this thought-provoking audiobook.
