Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ann Patchett

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Ann Patchett's warmth, intelligence and generosity of spirit come through in her inviting narration of her latest collection of essays. She sounds completely natural, almost as if she is puzzling out her concerns for the first time as she conveys each accomplished piece. A wide expanse of subject matter is thoughtfully presented. These include considerations in her decision to remain childless, an appreciation of her "three fathers," as well as several narratives candidly examining the writing life and an exquisite remembrance of Eudora Welty. What shine through in every essay are her kindness, sincerity, and incomparable ability to find the good in others. This splendid audiobook is a soothing balm for troubled times. M.J.
