HOW TO BE A GOOD CREATURE A Memoir in Thirteen Animals

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sy Montgomery

Biography & Memoir • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Naturalist and bestselling author Sy Montgomery narrates her memoir on animals that have shaped her life and her understanding of the world. She taps the full range of experience: Her stories are engaging and touching, humorous and terribly sad. Montgomery's narration captures her deep sense of wonder and affection for the creatures she studies--from Octavia the octopus to a pinktoe tarantula. Listeners will also hear her soul-crushing heartache at losing beloved pets, including her good pig, Christopher Hogwood, and her beloved dog, Tess. Listeners will come to share Montgomery's belief that animals have much to teach us about humor, perspective, empathy, forgiveness, despair, and gratitude. Every word of this production captures Montgomery's reverence for the world we share with other creatures. J.C.G.
