In just over a dozen essays, author-narrator Anna Quindlen looks at life from the far end of her 50s, reflecting on friendships, parenthood, marriage, materialism, mortality, and aging. Quindlen returns to her journalistic roots, using her well-loved personal style, which resonates broadly, especially with women of her generation. Taking a slightly conversational narrative approach, Quindlen creates an inviting atmosphere, making listeners feel as if they were sitting across the table from her, sipping coffee and swapping stories. Whether discussing the Baby Boomers' collective experience or her own best friend, Quindlen's exuberance is mirrored in her heartfelt reading. Her genuine emotions, although understated, shine throughout the performance, and listeners will quickly be nodding in agreement, wishing to share their own memories and opinions. C.B.L.
