Robert Petkoff has appeared on Chappelle's Show, Law & Order, and Quantum Leap. His Broadway credits include Spamalot, Fiddler on the Roof, and Ragtime. He lives with his wife in New York City. He has also narrated So Cold the River, The Cypress House, and The Ridge for Hachette Audio.
"So often novels affixed with labels like 'saga' and 'sweeping' and 'vast in scope' can be difficult to break into--their opening chapters slow and setting-laden. Not so with Robert Petkoff's outstanding performance of Proulx's gorgeous BARKSKINS. Petkoff's delivery is mesmerizing, with distinctive voices for generations of well-developed characters, and perfect pacing and incredible accents that give an air of authenticity. Immediately the listener is immersed in a place so colorfully depicted through both the written and spoken word that the time slips past and Proulx's wild forests settle in all around. The novel is indeed a sweeping saga, but Proulx and Petkoff are the duo to make the time seem too short. A transporting listen."--Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, AudioFile Magazine
