Quote of the day: on narrating non-fiction

As I look to update my non-fiction audio book demos, I'm inspired by Paul Ruben's wonderful blog post on the subject, and this quote in specific:

When an actor employs vocal technique as if it were the key to narrating non-fiction he finds himself speaking for the author rather than serving the narrative as if he were the author. His cure (vocal technique) kills the patient (the author).

Great stuff!
