Host Jo Reed and AudioFile publisher Michele Cobb talk about THE CHESTNUT MAN by Søren Sveistrup.
I tell stories.
An Audie-nominated, multiple Earphones Award-winning narrator, I’ve recorded hundreds of audiobooks and audio dramas — including Audible and New York Times bestsellers.
I’m a brain injury survivor, and I have a unique understanding of the music of language.
I was born in South Africa, in a valley Alan Paton called ‘lovely beyond any singing of it’. I grew up travelling, picking up a range of authentic dialects and languages along the way, eventually studying music and drama at the University of Cape Town. In South Africa, I worked in the theatre, touring the country with a small repertory company, as well as appearing on radio, TV and film.
I moved to London to study classical acting at LAMDA, and went on to train as a singer at the Royal Academy of Music, where I was part of the second graduating cohort of the now legendary RAM Musical Theatre programme. I also have an MA in creative writing from the University of East Anglia.
I now live just outside of London, in Hertfordshire.

To perform this poetic writing, it’s hard to imagine a better choice than Peter Noble.
…Vale finally lets loose in a harrowing scene so difficult that only the authenticity of Noble’s delivery carries it off.
Giving voice to the brash American, the cultured Englishman, and the elusive Frenchwoman, narrator Peter Noble deftly captures the energetic yet foreboding atmosphere of these 10 horror/fantasy/dark romance stories…
Part scientific inquiry into cephalopod intelligence and behaviour, part philosophical rumination on consciousness and identity, Other Minds is a book of rare insight… One early chapter which dazzlingly charts the evolution of consciousness, over billions of years, will leave you giddy and in awe.
Speaking with the erudition of an art history professor lecturing in London’s National Gallery, Noble adds to the sense of mystery in this true story…
