EARTHA & KITT A Daughter's Love Story in Black and White

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen Chilton

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Entertainment icon Eartha Kitt's biological daughter, Kitt Shapiro, offers a stirring and nuanced memoir of both her mother and herself-- their lives were so very intertwined. Narrator Karen Chilton's performance is a showstopper, at once superb, stunning, evocative, and moving. While Eartha Kitt was a mix of Black, Cherokee, and white ethnicity, her daughter's father was white. Eartha's difficult early years are not glossed over, but her later triumphant successes are celebrated in the most positive fashion. Shapiro managed her mother's career for many years. Perhaps more notable than any other aspect, the love shared by mother and daughter is most palpable throughout the transfixing bravura narration. This is an audiobook not to miss! W.A.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2021 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
