BODY WORK The Radical Power of Personal Narrative

by | Read by Melissa Febos

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Author/narrator Melissa Febos delivers a rousing manifesto on the transformative power of personal storytelling. This part-memoir, part-writing guide is presented as a series of candid essays that explore writing about traumatic experiences. Febos draws listeners in with her clear, unapologetic narration of practical advice about how to write about ourselves and/or others. She presents examples from her own work and from other writers in a way that provides encouragement and guidance. While Febos's writing may at times come across as academic, her heartfelt performance and insight provide broad resonance for both writers and nonwriters alike. For fans of writing tips, the audio format may best be paired with the print version as Febos's work inspires note-taking in abundance. V.T.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
