Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

This memoir by they author of VINEGAR HILL is, among other things, a study of pain, not just the physical discomfort produced by Ansay's chronic, undiagnosable illness, but also the pain of being different, of losing an easy faith in religion, and of giving up the dream of becoming a concert pianist. Jean Smart provides an excellent narration, especially when the writing winds back to Ansay's past, exploring her passion for music and her ambivalence toward Catholicism. Ansay's fans will especially welcome this memoir's insights into the writer's life and work. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
