Nina Bawden's most recent story concerns Fanny Pye, a widow in her sixties, who is mugged when she intervenes in a street fight. As she recuperates, her memory still fuzzy, her grown son and daughter assume she will be unable to take care of herself. Fanny reasserts herself and succeeds in reclaiming her own life and her independence. This audio production is excellent. Actress Eleanor Bron reads confidently with expert pacing. She differentiates among characters without exaggeration. Family Money is a good choice for popular listening. N.B.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 93]
