THE TRUFFLE UNDERGROUND by Ryan Jacobs, read by Ari Fliakos

Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine

Aug 9 2019 • 6 mins

Ari Fliakos is one of those talented narrators who suits his tone, pace, and style to the subject. Here it is well matched to the tumultuous world of the truffle market. He narrates with the assured attitude of a documentary voice-over. His simple imitations of Italians and French people strike the right balance. This prized fungus, especially the highly sought after Italian white and French black, have inspired an underground of thieves, dog killers, and dishonest purveyors who regularly mislabel provenance to jack up prices. The listener enters a demimonde of intense competition and extraordinary profit. The audiobook also provides an outstanding history of the truffle's culinary uses. Published by Random House Audio.
