"That voice. The first time I heard that voice I wasn't sure whether I'd just heard a Rumi poem or had a celestial visitation. It was that much of a peak listening experience. The more I listened, the more insistent I became that Marie-Pierre narrate something of mine. I didn't care if it was a book, a script or a recipe for shrimp scampi. I just wanted that voice caressing my words. Listen to a clip or three. I guarantee you'll feel that way, too."
