WHAT SHE ATE Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells Their Stories

by | Read by Kimberly Farr, Laura Shapiro

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this culinary biography, a newly established genre, food historian and journalist Laura Shapiro provides a different take on the lives of famous women, among them Eva Braun, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Helen Gurley Brown. Her focus is on the language of food. The author narrates the beginning and ending of the audiobook, and adds little. Principal narrator Kimberly Farr, however, impresses from the very beginning of her part. Entertaining and spirited, Farr is convincing and intentional as she demonstrates that special talent of being able to disappear behind the words and allow the biographical food narratives to do the communicating. This is a fun, different look at people you may feel you already know. See them and hear them now at the dining table. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
