THE ELECTRIC WOMAN A Memoir in Death-Defying Acts

by | Read by Tessa Fontaine

Biography & Memoir • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With the crisp, slightly gravelly voice of someone who eats fire for a living, author Tessa Fontaine narrates her powerful, heartfelt story about transformations, loss, mothers, and daughters. Fontaine dives into the colorful unpredictability of life in the circus to recover from caring for her mother after a major stroke. The amusing cast of characters who are part of Fontaine's "carny" life with the World of Wonders adds levity to the emotional powerhouse of her complex family relationships. What Fontaine lacks in vocal diversity between her male and female characters she makes up for with careful diction and a steady tone, even while recounting emotionally raw moments of overcoming her own fears and the worst moments of her mother's hospitalization.
