Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by January LaVoy

Fiction • 30 mins. • Unabridged • © 2016

This pithy story--an homage to MRS. DALLOWAY by Virginia Woolf--features an afternoon and evening in the life of Melania Trump as she prepares for a party. Both Adichie and narrator January LaVoy offer more probable truths than journalistic accounts of Mrs. Trump can manage. As she goes from her Pilates class to receiving the flower delivery she ordered for the evening ahead with her husband and his important business contacts, Mrs. Trump is fully human, no more or less flawed than any other entitled yet sensitive contemporary woman who bases her identity on her husband's interests. Instead of offering character voices, LaVoy makes characters so accessibly mundane that even the most opinionated listener comes to realize that the Trump family is complex and real. F.M.R.G.
