by | Read by Mary Laura Philpott

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Mary Laura Philpott narrates her collection of engaging personal essays with clarity and verve, as befits someone used to public speaking. The Emmy-winning cohost of the show "A Word on Words" on Nashville Public Television and author/illustrator of the humor book PENGUINS WITH PEOPLE PROBLEMS, Philpott has created a blend of memoir and social commentary that touches on a wide range of life experiences. Midlife angst, the perils of perfectionism, the truth telling of children--even when addressing serious topics, the often witty essays put a positive spin on life, which is magnified by Philpott's upbeat tone and cheerful demeanor. Her attractive, well-modulated voice increases the audiobook's appeal, making this an excellent listen for anyone looking for relatable inspiration.
