Terry McMillan's vibrant style is reflected not only in her latest novel, but through her own narration of it. Her energy and jive radiate from the recording, taking the listener to Jamaica and back, and back again, as Stella sorts through her life, love and ambition. Stella's internal monologue runs as a stream of consciousness and McMillan captures it with her voice, as well as the words she wrote. McMillan never misses a beat. Author, narrator and character mesh beautifully, sharing warm humor and brassy insight. A great production. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
