Author/narrator Chloé Cooper Jones dazzles listeners with a memoir that showcases her talent as an engaging writer and audio performer. A 2020 Pulitzer finalist for Feature Writing, she was born with sacral agenesis, a spinal condition that causes her physical pain, as well as mental and emotional pain from the constant judgment, pity, and prejudice of others. In this part-philosophical-memoir, part-travelogue, Jones offers a profoundly honest examination of society's standards of beauty and desirability, and insightfully explores disability, parenthood, relationships, and more. Her frank tone, along with nuanced pauses and thoughtful emphases, brings her stories to life. Jones's inspiring writing and powerful performance elicit thoughtful consideration of how we humans interact with one another. V.T.M.
