Performance Notes
The crystalline writing in the nine stories of the Pulitzer Prize-winning debut collection dazzles. These sensitive explorations of the lives of Indian immigrants and expatriates touch on universal themes, making them at once specific and broad in their appeal. Narrator Matilda Novak's light voice is fine for stories written by a young woman and the hint of melody in her reading is typical of Indian voices.....pleasantly read. A.C.S Audiofile Review

IMPULSE JoAnn Ross Read by Matilda Novak In the isolated mountain town of Hazard, Wyoming, a psychopath obsesses over his growing thirst for blood. Soon the vicious murders begin. With calm assurance Matilda Novak recounts the intersecting stories of Ross's eccentric characters: the burned-out sheriff; his rebellious 16-year-old son; a whiskey-throated late-night talk radio host who thought she could outrun her past, a relentless bounty hunter, and a boy raised by wolves. The effect is chilling.

Performance Notes
The people we deal with every day--doctors, hotel clerks, waiters, and mechanics--all WANT to be effective and helpful, says the author in this enlightening and smartly read audio lesson. Surveying people in a range of service industries, she got the inside scoop on what people in those professions need for them to want to do the best job possible. The optimistic message is made even more positive and entertaining by Matilda Novak's upbeat reading. It encourages listeners not to be pushy or entitled. Compliments and appreciation will do wonders with most service workers, along with being clear in communicating reasonable preferences.

"Highly anticipated was "Interpreter of Maladies, " by Jhumpa Lahiri. The winner of many literary prizes, including the Pulitzer Prize and O.Henry Award, this is a rare treat, as the stories are as delightful as the presentation.....Each story is told with a fresh approach and vivid language. Narrator Matilda Novak picks up on these changes and alters her delivery for each tale. She does this with a delicate touch. For instance, when we meet Twinkle, an Americanized young bride, we clearly hear the lack of guile in her voice. She sounds open and alive, but Novak does not allow Twinkle's brio to overpower the story. The narrator has crisp diction and a pleasing, feminine voice. She does not use accents but changes the pace and tone of her voice for male and female characters. Her pronunciation of foreign words is flawless." Rochelle O'Gorman, L.A.

Audiofile Review "Your recording was very clear and smooth and easy to listen to, as were the other books that I believe you've recorded for me. I also like how you put feeling into the reading as Spurgeon would have done when he preached." Paul J. Chamberlain writing with regard to Spiritual Warfare in the Believer's Life, by Charles Spurgeon Recorded at his request via the Braille Institute in Los Angeles
