Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Matthew McConaughey

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The product of a self-imposed desert exile with his exhaustive collection of personal journals, Matthew McConaughey's nontraditional memoir offers a series of philosophical reflections of his first 50 years and of life itself. It's written in an episodic style replete with poems, prescriptions, and four-letter words. McConaughey's performance is a tour-de-force one-man show. Varying his tone, volume, and perceived distance from the microphone, he creates an audiobook that is much like an experimental film whose theme is that the writer/narrator, as well as all of us, are spiritual beings having a human experience while looking for the green lights along the path. Dark at moments, the eccentric McConaughey charms and enchants with his Texas twang. At its conclusion, McConaughey reflects on the COVID-19 pandemic. W.A.G.
