Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

British biographer Michael Holroyd continues the autobiography he began with BASIL STREET BLUES with this biography of his family, which pieces together the lives of his relatives, close and distant. He begins by relating the financial and legal details surrounding his aunt's death and goes on to draw a picture of her life. Stephen Thorne reads this memoir in a droll voice. He emphasizes each discovery of Holroyd's family tree with even tones, projecting a lack of emotion that distances the listener from the story. Holroyd's story details the exacting research that family historians and genealogists embark upon as they dig around in all the papers and clues left behind by loved ones.
