Once upon a time...

Audio Wave

Fabler was founded in 2020 by Carlotta Brentan, an Italian stage, screen and voice actress and producer who has called New York home for the past decade. A life-long bookworm - and award-winning audiobook narrator for top American publishers - Carlotta launched Fabler to combine her acting and producing experience - and her obsession with books! - to bring an American flair to Italian-speaking audiobook listeners.

We have strong opinions about what we love in audiobook narration, so we thought we’d take a little more space to tell you about them. Here are Fabler, we love books. We love reading them, and we especially love listening to them. As you listen to an actor interpret the words the author crafted for you, their complementary skills combine to bring the story to life in a multi-dimensional, immersive way. This is thrilling and also, a big responsibility.

Fabler narrators are first and foremost devoted to honoring the author’s intention and breathing genuine life into their stories. They do so through a specific narrating style: natural, simple, dynamic. Devoid of formal stylistic devices or pretension. Fully present and alive in the immediacy of the action. Embodying the most disparate characters in the naturalistic and psychologically believable way that is a signature train of American approaches to acting.
