Narrator Jen Tullock is extraordinary in this superb audiobook about a terrible period in the life of the American dancer Isadora Duncan. A world-famous iconoclast, Isadora was living in Paris with the heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune when her two children were drowned in a motor accident. As Tullock plays out Gray's extraordinary imagining of the months that followed for this difficult, brilliant woman maddened with grief, you can instantly recognize each character by shifts in her vocal register and because she distinguishes their personalities one from another with canny intonations. She is alive to each sentence, and gifted at accents and at drama. In spite of a few groan-making mispronunciations, this is an exhilarating performance. Tullock's and Gray's Isadora is unforgettable. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
