Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Pete Cross brings a serious delivery to this collection of essays. He voices the intellectual curiosity, self-awareness, and irony of the author--a literary novelist and professor--with a measured and smart delivery. This very brief audiobook is by turns a recollection of high school, a memoir of time abroad, and a travel narrative of a pilgrimage to Willa Cather's home. It's also a thoroughly engaging literary excursion in which Henry James is derided, Borges celebrated, and Willa Cather admired. The author examines his motivations for writing this work. His wide-angle essays and literary point of view make for an engaging experience. Listeners learn about the United Nations and London culture, as well as hear fascinating asides on travel, drugs, and life on the road. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
