Publisher's Summary

Steve Matchett's thought-provoking short story - Breaking Bread with Ayrton Senna - has proved one of the author's most popular pieces of writing - atmospheric, haunting, tender, and poignant, all in equal measure. Set in Brazil, this truly compelling tale of the author's final day as a Formula 1 race mechanic, and how he decides to spend that day - visiting the Morumbi cemetery where Ayrton Senna rests, there spending precious reflective time recalling emotional past events - was first published in his highly acclaimed collection of short stories, These Desired Things.

This live performance edition sees Breaking Bread elevated in status - now awarded its own unique recording. Narrated by the author, this live performance edition is presented as a theatre-style reading of the work - the story itself divided into three distinct parts or "acts" - endowing the powerful, imagery-rich narrative with a pleasing sense of performance. This collectors' volume audiobook also includes an exclusive interview with the author - a wonderfully warm, revealing Q-&-A session in which Steve Matchett talks, with unguarded revealing insight, of his many years within the clandestine world of Formula 1 grand prix motor racing, and of his personal memories and recollections of competing alongside Ayrton Senna for grand prix glory - Matchett building race cars for his Benetton drivers; Senna working with McLaren and Williams.

With this valuable additional content, Breaking Bread with Ayrton Senna is the perfect short-story audiobook for any enthusiast of Matchett's masterful writings - and of his equally masterful audio narrations. The end result is a recorded volume sure to please fans of Ayrton Senna and Formula 1 racing alike - an audiobook to cherish forever.
