Jon Hamm in “Stinker Lets Loose!”

Posted on January 9, 2018 at 3:58 pm

It almost seems like there really was a movie back in 1977 called “Stinker Lets Loose,” part of those affectionately remembered cornpone road films like “Every Which Way But Loose,” “Cannonball Run,” and “Smokey and the Bandit.” There should have been, anyway. And now there sort of is, with the novel and audiobook (exclusively from Audible) starring Jon Hamm.

New from Audible: Nick Offerman Reads Mark Twain’s “Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 6:00 am

Nick Offerman reads one of the most beloved books by one of America’s most beloved authors for Audible, available today.  A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court pretty much invented the idea of time travel in fiction, and it has inspired dozens of adaptations.  As the title suggests, it is the story of a plainspoken American who finds himself back in the days of the knights of the round table.  I thought of it this summer because there is a very dramatic scene where the hero’s ability to predict a solar eclipse astonishes the courtiers.  There could not be a better choice for narration that Nick Offerman, whose rich tone and wry humor are perfectly suited to Twain’s prose.
