HONEY, BABY, MINE A Mother and Daughter Talk Life, Death, Love (and Banana Pudding)

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Laura Dern, Diane Ladd, Reese Witherspoon [Fore.]

Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This genre-bending collection of searingly intimate real-life conversations exemplifies everything that is exciting about audio as a medium. When actor Diane Ladd is diagnosed with lung scarring from pesticide exposure, she's given six months to live and told that exercise is her only chance for improvement. Ladd's daughter, actor Laura Dern, proposes daily walks, with the commitment to leave nothing between the two unsaid. Recording their conversations ignites the storyteller and performer in Ladd, whose breath and spirit audibly improve as the audiobook progresses. Listening to these raw conversations would feel voyeuristic if the emotional themes the women cover weren't so universal. Ladd and Dern are highly gifted at connecting with an audience, making this a phenomenally crafted audio experience unlike any other. J.T.
