Emilia Fox to narrate The Wreckage

Actress Emilia Fox of "The Pianist" fame is going to narrate one of Orion’s leading 2020 debuts, The Wreckage by Audible’s Robin Morgan-Bentley. 

Fox, who also narrated the audiobook of The Girl Before by J P Delaney (Quercus), will be joined on the audio production by Jack Hawkins and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, with multiple voices being used to draw listeners into the internal perspectives of each character.

Exploring the aftermath of a fatal car crash, The Wreckage is described as both a “sinister thriller” and “a gripping exploration of male mental health”. It be released on the Orion Group's Trapeze imprint on 6th February 2020 in print, e-book and audio simultaneously. 

Morgan-Bentley, author of The Wreckage, said: “My day job is all about making books come to life in audio so when I wrote The Wreckage, the audio edition was right at the front of my mind. It is a thriller told entirely in the first person and I am so thrilled that Emilia, Kobna and Jack agreed to read it. They are all hugely accomplished voice actors and I was blown away by their performances when I got a chance to listen to them in studio. I can’t wait for people to hear it in February next year.”

Paul Stark, senior audio manager at Orion, said: “Robin’s book is utterly extraordinary - it’s been a pleasure to work with him on the transfer to audio. We’ve brought together an amazing cast, and we can’t wait to share the final audiobook with the world.”
