Biography & Memoir • 40 mins. • Unabridged • © 2021

Author Susan Orlean, who is most known for her book THE ORCHID THIEF, narrates a short essay about overcoming her fear of flying. She highlights her phobia and the path she took to overcome it. She also provides a short history of those psychological treatments--chiefly hypnosis. As she switches from first- and second-person points of view, Orlean's experience is shared in an introspective manner with just a touch of humor. Though it's apparent she's reading an essay aloud, she instills her performance with enough emotion to keep listeners engaged with her story. Clocking in at approximately 40 minutes, this short audiobook is an enlightening production for listeners who are interested in the topic.
