A little understood behind-the-scenes job in the film making industry. Would you like to have a job like this? To have your business card read “Foley Artist” as a job description?
It is interesting to think that the novelist has to somehow convey the sound or the texture of a scene using only words. And to do it without overwriting (describing absolutely everything).
When you read a novel does your mind create the “sound” in your head? It may be odd, but when I read P.G. Wodhouse I have to “hear” the characters speaking in British accents!
