BLACKBIRD A Childhood Lost and Found

by | Read by Jennifer Lauck

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

This riveting memoir of a girl's tempestuous early years is made all the more intense by being read by the author. Jennifer Lauck's words tell their own story of loss and strength through the eyes of a child. Add to this the author's unadorned, clear voice and the listener can easily be carried off to the 1970s, when little Jennifer's family was still intact and everyone had a role: Mother is beautiful but fragile, Jennifer takes care of her, Daddy works . . . The deterioration of this simple portrait is the focus of the work, but there is no self-pity in the words or the voice. This memoir and Jennifer's triumph are unforgettable.
