South African Expat’s Audiobook Nominated for Top Award

The audiobook for a story set in South Africa – ‘The Zebra Affaire’ – has been nominated for a prestigious Voice Arts Award, which is the equivalent of the voice over and narration industries’ Grammy Awards.

The story is written by Californian-based South African expat Mark Fine from Joburg, and read by Capetonian and fellow SA expat Dennis Kleinman (who lives just an hour away in LA).

‘The Zebra Affaire’ – which features a love affair between a white woman and black man during the Apartheid era in SA – has the voices of all its characters read superbly by Kleinman… earning the book a Best Voiceover nomination in the ‘Audiobook Narration – Fiction’ category.

Fine said: “SO EXCITED! … South African Dennis Kleinman’s multi-accented voicings of all the characters within my novel was brilliant, stellar! Delighted his peers in Los Angeles have acknowledged his powerful performance…┬áCongratulations Dennis Kleinman… and THANK YOU!”

The Awards will be held on 18 November 2018 on the Warner Bros. lot. #HoldingThumbs!
