Whether discussing the death of his daughter's fish or a visit to his psychiatrist, Adam Gopnik is a master of mining big revelations from small observations. But surprise! It's his narrative skills, not his literary skills, that steal the show in his new audiobook. As a narrator, Gopnik uses timing, tone, and coloring to bring alive this intimate and bittersweet collection of essays about family life in New York pre- and post-9/11. Gopnik, a self-confessed ham, is not afraid to dive into the voices, adding character and tone to, among others, his psypchiatrist, his children, and even local radio sports commentators.
