Long Gone Daddies by David Wesley Williams is now available as an audiobook through Audible.com (also coming soon to iTunes). Narrator David Kudler brings Williams’ lyrical writing style to life while also providing original music for the production.
Singer-songwriter John Gorka called Long Gone Daddies “a story that sings. This tale of a struggling band unfolds in the places where my favorite music was born. But like a good song, it transcends the particular. It conjures Maxwell Perkins’s idea that one of the great themes in literature is a man’s pursuit of his father, and Utah Phillips’s line that ‘the past didn’t go anywhere.’ ”
Narrator David Kudler is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Stillpoint Digital Press, oversees the publications program for the Joseph Campbell Foundation, and is the author of Risuko, a young adult novel set in Japan during the Civil War era. Kudler lives with his wife and daughters near San Francisco, CA.
To quote Bland Simpson of the Red Clay Ramblers and author of Into the Sound Country, “Luther, Delia, and the Long Gone Daddies are on a rocking, rhythm-and-blues tear across the South, and you want to be there when the band starts playing.” So download your copy of Long Gone Daddies today!
Long Gone Daddies is the second Blair title to be produced as an audiobook, following Neal Gaiman’s production of Steven Sherrill’s The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break in October 2011, also available through Audible.com.
