From the first moments of Natalie Goldberg's recording of WRITING DOWN THE BONES, her classic work on writing and life, listeners know they are hearing something wonderful. For this special recording, Goldberg reads and then comments on each of her chapters--in essence, offering listeners two books in one package. Everything is read in what Goldberg calls her "New York Jewish voice"--softened after many years in the West--and is suffused with her quirky, delightful sense of humor. In addition, this production offers Goldberg's new introduction to the book (recorded spontaneously at the end of the recording sessions) and an insightful interview with Goldberg by Sounds True's Tami Simon. This is a keeper. A.C.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
