Donofrio's memoir traces her evolution as a teenaged terror, followed by the "curse" of having a child, Jason, at the age of 17. The next years, spent on welfare and made tolerable by an abundant use of pharmaceuticals, are followed by her eventual admission into college and move to New York. The graphic and darkly humorous description of Donofrio's life, along with its vivid caricatures of her family and friends, is perfectly suited to Christina Moore's plaintive voice. Moore adds another wonderful performance to her growing repertoire. Her presentation will amuse, entertain, and enlighten listeners with its frank portrayal of the long journey Donofrio takes on her way to realizing her good fortune. E.J.F.
