Ibi Zoboi's biography of science fiction writer Octavia Butler presents a clear picture of her work and of what life was like when Butler was growing up. Narrator Robin Miles's smooth and honeyed voice alternates with Zoboi's higher, lighter pitch as the two make the most of the text's poetry and prose. The audiobook explains the major events of the day and how they influenced Butler's writing. When Zoboi speaks of how she herself became acquainted with Butler, she does so with a warmth and conviction that help convey the influence the MacArthur Fellowship winner had on her own work. Listeners new to Octavia E. Butler are likely to seek out her books for themselves. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
