Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rosie Perez

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Rosie Perez convincingly narrates this memoir by Ronnie Spector, lead singer of the Ronettes, a complicated woman who was socially naïve, emotionally fearless, and prone to melodrama. Perez and Spector are spiritual kin--showbiz outliers with distinctive voices, street cred, and all-in performing styles. Much of the audiobook is devoted to her producer/husband Phil Spector, who kept Ronnie a prisoner in his mansion after making her a star. Barefoot, and with her mom's help, she broke free, after which Phil devoted himself to ruining her career, for example, calling her before her Vegas debut to tell her she would be dead within two hours. After 30 years, this classic memoir has been reissued with a 2022 epilogue, written by the author shortly before her death. R.W.S.
