  • Jason Butler Harner on BBC Book of the Week reads 'Manhood for Amateurs'

    Jason Butler Harner (who plays Gordon Stewart Northcott in Changeling) reads from Pulitzer prize-winning author Michael Chabon's moving, warm and witty memoir about life as a husband, father and son.
    In exploring what it means to be a man today, Chabon reflects on the personal and family history that haunts him even as it's being written every day. At the centre of a large and complex family, and with four young children, Chabon evokes memories of his childhood, of his parents' marriage and divorce and of moments of painful adolescent comedy.

    I found listening to Mr. Harner read Manhood For Amateurs quite enjoyable. In light of Mr. Harner's role in Changeling, parts of Episode 3 take on a chilling tone.
