About the Author

Charles Leggett, AudioFile Earphones Award-winning narrator, is based in Seattle where he works onstage at Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, ACT, and Seattle Shakespeare Company, among many others. His voice work is also featured in the first two Dungeon Siege video games as well as in Hoyle's Casino Empire.

A true novel of ideas...A tale of bright, rambunctious, aspiring young people.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Narrator Charles Leggett becomes a one-man band. He sings. He speaks English and French. He does accents: British, Irish, French, German, as well as American regionals from Brooklyn to California. He portrays men, women, and children. And he does it all well.

-- "AudioFile"

Andersen's satirical wit is well evident, but he plays fair, offering scenarios to offend nearly everyone. In the tradition of the old-fashioned epic, Heyday presents amazing coincidences, lengthy digressions, and myriad descriptions of mores and vices.

-- "Booklist"

[Andersen] celebrates the tumultuous energy and the careless optimism of an America on the move.
