BOMB SHELTER Love, Time, and Other Explosives

by | Read by Mary Laura Philpott

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In this essay collection, author and narrator Mary Laura Philpott brings to life the worries, absurdities, and challenges that arise from loving people through life's transitions. Philpott's perceptive presentation invites listeners to hear her inner dialogue as she reflects on parenting a child diagnosed with epilepsy, as well as dealing with aging parents, the loss of beloved pets, and becoming middle-aged. Philpott sensitively narrates themes ranging in emotion from profound--her feelings surrounding the approaching departure of her growing children--to humorous--her descriptions of Frank the turtle, who roams her yard at will, a living symbol of patience and loyalty. Through these vignettes, Philpott draws meaningful conclusions with an engaging style. D.H.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
