Award-winning actor Dennis Quaid star of the epic film THE RIGHT STUFF gives his voice to the first digital audio version of Tom Wolfe’s classic work of nonfiction.
Audible Inc., announced the release of Tom Wolfe’s best-selling adventure story The Right Stuff, performed by dramatic and comedic actor Dennis Quaid, who also starred in the 1983 epic film adaptation. The Audible book, available for the first time in digital audio, can now be downloaded exclusively from Audible at www.audible.com/therightstuff.
Here is a sample of the book.
“Dennis Quaid’s indelible performance as Gordon Cooper in the film was an early landmark in a storied career, and his nuanced interpretation of each character in the Audible edition of The Right Stuff is just as rewarding,” said Audible EVP and Publisher Beth Anderson. “Whether you’ve been a fan of the book for decades or an Audible connoisseur looking for your next great listen, this title is an absolute must-have for your library.”
Audible Studios has also acquired the rights to produce Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test for the first time in digital audio, with casting and a release date to be announced.
