How do we tell our stories? Are there moments that irrevocably change our lives? Are we honest in the retelling of these events? These questions are addressed in this captivating audiobook. Narrator Edoardo Ballerini perfectly matches the tone and pacing of an unnamed narrator who runs into an old acquaintance while delayed at JFK airport. They haven't seen each other in more than 20 years. As they wait in the first-class lounge, the acquaintance tells the narrator a story about the time he saved a man from drowning. Ballerini does an excellent job of navigating the shifts between the past and present, and of portraying the narrator as relatable.
