THE FACT OF A BODY A Murder and a Memoir

by | Read by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich passionately narrates her memoir of childhood abuse at the hands of her grandfather and the capital murder case she researched in order to come to terms with her experiences. The daughter of two lawyers and a lifelong opponent of the death penalty, she finds her convictions are tested when she encounters the case of a convicted murderer that eerily reminds her of her own story. As narrator, her psychological--and physical--struggles as well as her isolation from her family come through in her tone. And while she's obviously not a professional performer, her voice works to emphasize how her emotions drive her actions and choices during the investigation. A darkly challenging topic read with authentic feeling, THE FACT OF A BODY provides listeners with plenty to ruminate. J.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
