FINDING PEGGY A Glascow Childhood

by | Read by Dorothy Paul

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Dorothy Paul's infectious Scottish burr carries this memoir of the author's upbringing in a housing project in the 1950s. Henderson's dreary existence is bolstered by the closeness of family and neighbors and the support of two strong women--her mother and Aunt Peggy. When the latter dies in childbirth, the family is shattered. Years later, Henderson, out of poverty and a mother herself, goes back to find out what really happened. Paul picks up on the humor, indignation, and occasional preachiness of the text and easily slips into the local dialect for some of the characters. This book is no ANGELA'S ASHES, but the voice and the mystery will keep listeners involved. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
