ESMOND AND ILIA An Unreliable Memoir

by | Read by Marina Warner

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Author Marina Warner narrates this complicated memoir, which combines her parents' experiences in WWII and her own memories of growing up in England and Egypt. Her polished British accent helps frame this reimagining of how her Italian and English parents got together. Warner evokes the bygone era with her soft, gentle style. Listeners can sink into the author's memories, which she admits are often unreliable. This personal story begins in 1941 and ranges from England to Italy and Egypt. These are the soulful recollections of a daughter who is discovering family lore, and fans of memoir will find much to admire. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
