Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Nicol Zanzarella portrays Vanya Erickson as resilient and forgiving in her memoir about her erratic upbringing by a father suffering from PTSD after WWII and a Christian Scientist mother. Zanzarella plunges herself into Erickson's life and surroundings to sincerely describe the strong feelings of isolation that would leave the author feeling paralyzed with fear. Zanzarella has a particular ability to expose Erickson's deeply personal and revealing moments with care and authenticity, and she perceives those thoughts and emotions meticulously. She also convincingly mimics Erickson's parents. The most intriguing and shocking moments of Erickson's life are recounted with intensity and power, enhancing a captivating true story of a childhood survived.
