THE URGENT LIFE My Story of Love, Loss, and Survival

by | Read by Bozoma Saint John

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

When Bozoma Saint John's husband is diagnosed with terminal cancer, they decide to cancel their divorce and make the most of their time together. Saint John's performance is tremendously appealing--full of sass and wit. The daughter of Ghanaian immigrants, she lost a college boyfriend to suicide and a baby to preeclampsia, succeeded in the business world, and navigated an interracial marriage. This is a memoir full of grief and love, and Saint John sounds genuine and reflective. But when she sees the funny or absurd side of things-- which is quite often--her voice contains a clear "are-you-kidding-me?" tone. Living a life focused on gratitude and purpose isn't a new idea, but Saint John's narration enhances this message. A.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
