Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author Heather Havrilesky narrates her essays with zeal and style. The works share her passions (family and feminism), her interests (literature and television), and her opinions (on getting away from it all, love, and child-rearing). A longtime TV critic, she offers takes on TV antiheroes, which are especially good. An excellent narrator, she has a quirky sense of humor, intense focus, and a talent for the dramatic. This audiobook is packed with personal observations and details. Her talented mother and philandering father are described warts and all. Havrilesky has a keen eye for human frailties, and the personal essay genre suits her. Those who know her from her NEW YORK MAGAZINE advice column will not be surprised by her candor, self-revelations, and comedic turns.
