Imponderables Proper the Dance: The Russian Collection

From the author: Michael did a phenomenal job narrating my book of poetry. It was a joy to work with him – to have a true professional actor at my disposal to narrate and interpret my words – and Michael was always willing to go the extra mile to achieve the desired delivery. The end result far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Michael for his narration work.

I liked especially Hardy’s handling of “Moscow nights.” The reading is clear and moving. Good feeling and intonation. -Tom Hulme
