HOURGLASS Time, Memory, Marriage

by | Read by Dani Shapiro

Biography & Memoir • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Writer Dani Shapiro performs her memoir with a meditative understated tone, giving the words themselves more focus than her performance. At midlife, Shapiro looks back at her marriage and with precise diction and elocution moves back and forth through time examining the bond that has held her and her husband together as they've worked to make ends meet as freelance writers, raise a son, and cope with aging parents. As a narrator and a writer, Shapiro approaches sorrows, joys, and everyday life as equals--examining them for threads of meaning and connection rather than playing for easy emotional payoffs. Honest and engaging, this literary memoir will resonate with many listeners. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
