You, Fascinating You – First Glimpse Inside the Upcoming Audiobook!

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be narrating this exquisite novel written by Germaine Shames, produced by Punch Audio.  You, Fascinating You is based on the true story of Hungarian ballerina, Margit Wolf, who leaves Hungary at the age of 17 with dreams of dancing at La Scala.  Once in Italy, she meets Italian composer, Pasquale Frustaci, the man who would become the love of her life.  As World War II becomes imminent and in the wake of Mussolini’s edict banishing foreign Jews from Italy, Margit returns to Hungary with their young son. She would not be reunited with her Italian maestro for another 22 years.

In this brief clip, older Margit takes us back to the day when at 17, she breaks the news to her parents that she has received an opportunity to dance … at La Scala. Have a listen!
