Saying Hello to Latin America

The excellent publishers of the Latin American edition of 'A Corner of White' asked me to record myself saying hello to readers and telling them about the trilogy.  I tried 27 times.  Here are a few samples.

Take 1

Take 5

Take 12

Take 19

Take 27

Charlie shows me up on his second take.

Was there a final version? Charlie's laugh sounds like balloons squeaking together (in a good way!)

It does, or a bicycle pump (again, in a good way). Thank you, Diem: I think you say it best.

And Michael, the last one here was where I gave up. Some of the earlier ones were sort of ok but my eyes keep darting back and forth. I guess that's what I do when I'm thinking. And being able to SEE myself do this on the computer screen was making me insane. I kept thinking of the OJ trial and how they said when he looked in one direction it meant he was trying to remember and in another he was trying to invent. I must have been trying to do both at the same time. I'm going to try again tomorrow.
