About the Author:

Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) was born in Germany and later became a citizen of Switzerland. As a Western man profoundly affected by the mysticism of Eastern thought, he wrote many novels, stories, and essays that bear a vital spiritual force that has captured many generations of readers. In 1946 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature.



Jeff Woodman originated the title role in Tennessee Williams' The Notebook of Trigorin and won the S.F. Critics' Circle Award for his performance in An Ideal Husband. In addition to numerous theater credits on and off Broadway, his television work includes Sex and the City, Law & Order, and Cosby. A six time Audie Award finalist (and a 2007 winner), he has received seventeen Earphones Awards and was named one of the Fifty Greatest Voices of the Century by AudioFile magazine.
