Ron McLarty author of The Memory of Running, Traveler and Art In America has a new novel out on audio narrated by one audiobooks top narrators, Ron McLarty! The Dropper is a story of 2 brothers set in England in the 1920's that is both heartbreaking and humorous. It's a story evocative of both time and place told with the richly drawn characters you have come to expect from Mclarty's novels.
I just have to say you are, by far, the best narrator of audiobooks ever and Iíve heard many of them. What I notice is that I donít get tired of your voice and I donít get irritated with anything about your style. It seems that some of the major narrators have some annoying quirks that donít bother me at first, but by the middle of the book, Iím wishing someone else (like you) had done the book. In addition, you have a wonderful ear for voices and inflection. I often find myself forgetting that you are doing all of the voices. Thanks so much for the pleasure you give through this wonderful ability.
Full cast including Ron McLarty
This full-cast performance of the tenth anniversary edition of Neil Gaimanís American Gods (think directorís cut) is one of the most mesmerizing audio experiences ever. Suppose all the gods and demons, trolls and imps that were ever carried here in imagination are still all around us, pumping gas, playing shell games, running funeral homes, and plotting war against our new gods of media and technology. Ron McLarty plays a randy, crusty old Odin disguised as a white-collar con man to perfection. Daniel Oreskesís Shadow, the hero who doesnít know quite what he is, is masterful. Oliver Wyman, who did Mad Sweeney the Leprechaun, is a genius. Hats in the air for the whole cast, a flawless production, and a tour de force of a tale. B.G.

Deliver Us From Evil
Read by Ron McLarty
Ron McLarty comfortably handles the diverse accents and speech rhythms required to establish identifiable characters of both genders. Several characters in this thriller are making repeat appearances from the recent novel The Whole Truth. McLarty's command of pace and clarity of delivery allow the listener to navigate the challenges of following two separate investigations while also untangling the pathology of a war criminal and terrorist. McLartyís subtle emotional intensity is particularly compelling as he presents horrifying scenes without theatrics.

Season Of Gifts
Read by Ron McLarty
Grandma Dowdel is back! She's up to her old tricks of bestowing her "gifts" upon the unsuspecting, this time her new neighbors, a young minister and his family. Peckís story portrays life in a small American town in 1958. Ron McLartyís pacing, cadence, and tone fit the setting and characters perfectly. McLarty saves the best for Grandma Dowdel. His rich, gravelly, no-nonsense vocalization carries her all-knowing sagacity and wry sense of humor. Once again, we fear not for our young protagonist or his family because Grandma Dowdel is there. McLarty knows we are relying on Grandma Dowdel to work her quiet magic, and his delivery reassures us that she will. Peck has treated readers to another literary gift, and McLarty reads it with aplomb. J.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
Many authors read their own books. But with Traveler, there's a sweet twist. Author Ron McLarty is an established actor and audio narrator. But thanks to Stephen King, McLarty is now a published novelist. In 2003, King wrote a glowing review in Entertainment Weekly of McLarty's unpublished novel, The Memory of Running, which King had heard on audio.
Publishers took notice, and now McLarty has released his second novel, Traveler. It is a wistful depiction of East Providence, RI, in the 1960's, a gritty Italian/Irish/Portuguese neighborhood. The narrator in the novel, Jono Riley, is a New York City actor/bartender who returns home after he receives a letter about the death of his first love.
