Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listening to this masterful narration by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer is a solid choice for those wanting to enjoy Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran’s prose. The narrators share his wisdom for the ages in beautifully read phrases…In a deep baritone Kramer takes on the words of the prophet from whom people ask advice. His authoritative and confident performance is balanced by Kate Reading’s tender delivery of the chapters she reads…The production has two options for listening: one with musical interludes and one without. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Those wishing to listen to Gibran’s perennially popular spiritual poem have many narrations from which to choose…This appealing new production featuring husband-and-wife narration team Michael Kramer and Kate Reading stands out from the pack….This production gives a sense of gravity to Gibran’s life-affirming and empowering message that will reward—and may require—repeated listens…Still popular after a century, the book brims with wise words for those with ears to hear, and is a natural recommendation for fans of The Alchemist and seekers in general.” Booklist (audio review)

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), an artist, poet, and writer, was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States. He is known in the English-speaking world primarily for The Prophet, a book of twenty-six poetic essays published in 1923 which achieved cult status. He remains one of the world’s bestselling poets, second only to Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. To many he is a genius whose philosophical and prophetic style convey important messages about life and humanity in a simple, yet beautifully eloquent manner, which was described by Library Journal as "poetic prose, half New Testament and half Walt Whitman.”
