FUNNY FARM My Unexpected Life with 600 Rescue Animals

by | Read by Erin Moon

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Sometimes verging on laughter, narrator Erin Moon's cheery delivery also dips for tragedy but never cracks. When Laurie Zaleski's father attempted to take a camp ax to her mother, Annie scooped their three children into a borrowed car, hid them, and built a new life. "The more you cry, the less you'll pee," Annie said when life got hard. With this mother in her corner, Laurie grew up and battled her way into a successful business, then took in animals by the score. Horses, lambs, cats, and even emus are among the 600 strays welcomed to the fifteen-acre last resort in South Jersey called Funny Farm. Moon's voice rises as triumph begets triumph, dips in the face of obstacles, and never tips into smugness. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
