Simon Vance Wins Best Male Narrator

This year's Audie Awards winners were announced last night in New York City at a gala ceremony hosted by comedian Paula Poundstone. Simon Vance won Best Male Narrator for his narration of Alan Moore’s epic novel Jerusalem, which at one million words is 200,000 words longer than the Bible. 

While preparing for this massive undertaking, Simon said, “Jerusalem portrays the heart of England, the author’s hometown of Northampton, so the best research I can think of is actually going there to meet the author and the city itself.” And Simon did indeed travel to England to meet with Alan Moore and research Northampton.
