WALKING WITH GHOSTS by Gabriel Byrne, read by Gabriel Byrne

Irish actor Gabriel Byrne’s smoky voice whispers in your ear, gets in your head, and takes you on a deeply personal journey of his life. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this memoir written in a style that feels like stream-of-consciousness poetry, with a gorgeous narration. Byrne reveals his attraction to the rituals of the Church, his desire to become a priest—until he was molested by a priest—finding his way into acting, and his struggles with addiction. A fantastic recording of a well-written book, this memorable autobiography is outstanding. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
