by | Read by Kenny Leon, Ryan Vincent Anderson [Fore.]

Biography & Memoir • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Theater director Kenny Leon's natural performance of his memoir is especially touching as he recounts a life filled with love, gratitude, and deep reflection. Leon takes listeners back to growing up in Florida with his Grandma Mamie, his lodestar, and his artistic, conservative mother, Annie Ruth. He also describes times of personal doubt as an actor/director with the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, his initial meeting and work with renowned playwright August Wilson, and his success as a Tony Award winner. His narration allows for an honest but never maudlin evaluation of his mistakes as he ponders his life's purpose. The best advice his Grandma gave him? "The only limits are the ones you set yourself. You have all you need in you right now." Inspiring listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
