In this brutally honest account of her life, O'Faolain reveals her introspections on her own existence. Losses and regrets are examined in detail as she untangles her thoughts about them. Her melodious voice lends a calming sense of catharsis as she shares her innermost feelings with her listeners. Writing is "clarifying the muddle in my head," she says, and the "therapeutic effects of autobiography" can be truly heard through her narration of her journey as woman and writer. As she floats from topic to topic, the listener is privy to details and minutiae that flesh out a whole person who has lived a full life. D.L.M.
