AudioFile Magazine Earphone Award Winner

“Narrator Peter Lerman recounts the inevitable demise of Stetson-wearing Johnny Jenkins, former president of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America. Jenkins, an expert on Texas history and rare books, started out as a successful businessman in Austin. Lerman gives him outsized Texas charm and a good-old-boy accent. Listeners will have an exhilarating ride as he begins forging historical documents, successfully evades the FBI, and poses as a high-stakes poker player who calls himself Austin Squatty. Lerman masterfully quotes awestruck dealers (both book and card) as they learn the depths of Jenkins’s duplicity. His suicide–staged to look like a murder–makes for a riveting conclusion to this incredible life story. Audio makes the lies of this con man particularly compelling. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award”

Nobody's Angel Front CoverIn this haunting audiobook, a noir gem, narrator Peter Lerman’s gruff voice brings cab driver Eddie Miles to life. Eddie is a man who has been beaten down and who accepts the dangers of his job in the declining city of Chicago. Then he is pulled into two serial crimes. Eddie decides to help the police find the culprits. Lerman deftly animates those in Eddie’s world, including passengers, fellow cabbies, and even cops. The result is a bittersweet story that finishes on just the wrong side of redemption.

Robert Chiles, Author
‘The Revolution of ’28’

“Narrator Peter Lerman has just the right mix of energy and emotion, informing a straightforward presentation of facts that are complex and fascinating. He is so easy to listen to. Like all good narrators, I sometimes forgot that the voice I was hearing was not that of the author. I have no idea what the author “sounds like” when he speaks. I am referring to “owning the story.” Lerman owns it.”

Audible Listener 5-Star Review
‘The Revolution of ’28’ by Robert Chiles

cover-art-GolemPeter Lerman is an intuitive, insightful reader who quickly grasps the nuances of the printed word and expresses the text as though he has lived it himself. My book is set mostly in Montréal and it has been observed that English-speaking Montréalers have their own, unique cadence and rhythm which Peter quickly understood. Peter listened carefully to notes and instructions and found his way organically through my muscular text, revealing depths and meaning of which even I was unaware.”

More than all this, Peter is an enthusiastic partner in the creative process – producing this kind of work is not simply a job for him, but rather a vocation for which he has a gift. I listen to his audio version of my book as though it is a fresh unique experience.”

silent-source“Quite simply, working with Peter Lerman is a delight! His talent for reading novels is remarkable, especially his innate ability to find the right dialect or accents for a wide variety of characters. Few can match that talent. I was particularly impressed with his uncanny attention to detail and his readiness to research words for which pronunciation was uncertain. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone requiring a superior professional read for their audiobook.”

Wonderlust Cover for ACXOnce you listen to a narration by Peter Lerman–the clear, precise enunciation of every word–you have to ask yourself: “Why would anyone do their own narration?”

Beyond narration, though, he provided me with turnkey management, end-to-end, of the process of producing an audiobook. He saved me hours of getting up to speed on yet another book marketing tool.

You brought them to life in a way that I’d hoped. I love it. You had me howling at my own work — thank you!”
