BEFORE HER The One, Book 1

by | Read by Jacqueline Woodson

Biography & Memoir • 30 mins. • Unabridged • © 2019

In this brief yet affecting memoir, award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson narrates select moments from her personal history, describing the various loves and losses that have shaped her life and eventually led her to her partner, Juliet. It's an account that's both poignant and joyful, and often contextualized by the events of the 1980s and '90s, when Woodson was coming up, coming out, and searching for a sense of belonging. Woodson narrates with the unhurried pace of an author who knows just how her words should land; even the occasional stilted pauses add to the intimacy of the performance, evoking the feeling of a live reading. No less profound for its brevity, this is a must-listen for adult Woodson fans. An original story from Amazon's The One series. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
