John's Voice ...

John had an amazing voice, rich and expressive. Soothing.

I am so glad to have this, his reading of the last chapter of Davis Grubb's The Night of the Hunter.

(It is a large file as mp3s go, nearly 20 minutes long. If it appears to be taking a while to load, that's why.)

Wow. I posted a comment about this but it came up from a weird name. Thank you for posting this. Ellen (John's daughter)

Surely, Ellen. I thought the family wouldn't mind if I shared.

He sent it to me a few years ago. He used to talk about Davis all the time, about how he worked at the agency by day and wrote his novel by night. John thought I should do the same, get a "real" job to pay the bills and write in my off hours. So I think this file was one more way of him nudging me down that path.
