Paul Watkins is receiving national acclaim for his razor-sharp prose. He is often compared to legendary writers like Ernest Hemingway and Jack London.

Archangel takes the listener deep into the woods of Maine, where two determined men clash over acres of valuable trees. Noah Mackenzie, an ambitious businessman, is racing against the clock to log thousands of acres of ancient forest before new legislation can stop him. Reclusive environmentalist Adam Gabriel is willing to give his life to protect those majestic pines. As profits and preservation collide, the conflict brews a devastating combination of natural catastrophe and social violence.

Paul Watkins’ riveting novel turns a towering northern landscape into an ideological battlefield that is compelling and absolutely unforgettable. Watkins’ powerful work has made him one of the best-reviewed new writers on the current American literary scene.

About the Narrator

George Guidall, winner of eighty-eight AudioFile Earphones Awards, has twice won the prestigious Audie Award for Excellence in Audiobook Narration. In 2014 the Audio Publishers Association presented him with the Special Achievement Award for an audiobook narrator of exceptional stature and accomplishment. During his thirty-year recording career he has recorded over 1,100 audiobooks, won multiple awards, been a mentor to many narrators, and shown by example the potential of fine storytelling. Among Guidall’s narration achievements are Crime and Punishment, The Iliad, and John Irving’s A Widow for One Year, which earned him an Audie Award for best unabridged narration of a novel, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. Guidall’s forty-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie Award for best performance off Broadway, and frequent television appearances.
