THE POINT IS Making Sense of Birth, Death, and Everything in Between

by | Read by Lee Eisenberg

Personal Growth • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Lee Eisenberg performs his exploration of literature, philosophy, history, and his own personal stories to find the meaning of life through all its phases. Eisenberg develops the metaphor of a "scribbler" who lives in our heads, writing our life stories as we go along--so this is a writer writing about writing while frequently referencing other writing. This could come off as navel-gazing (which Eisenberg acknowledges), but while his thoughts are carefully reasoned, his performance glows with the sense of spontaneity, curiosity, and discovery he must have felt while doing his research. His excitement combined with flashes of humor is infectious, creating forward momentum and persuading listeners to consider the stories they're making of their own lives.
