Scott Smith at Tantor Media acquired World English audio rights to comedian Sam Tallent’s debut novel, RUNNING THE LIGHT, at auction.

Thompson and Denis Johnson, the novel follows one-time industry darling, Billy Ray Schafer, through seven spun-out days across the American Southwest. An ensemble cast of comedians narrate including Doug Stanhope, Marc Maron, Bert Kreischer, Chris Gethard, Tim Dillon, Ari Shaffir, Dan Soder, Trae Crowder, Adam Cayton-Holland, David Gborie, Jackie Kashian, Kyle Kinane, and many more. The book is currently available in print at Congrats, Sam!
