IRMA The Education of a Mother's Son

by | Read by Joe Knezevich

Biography & Memoir • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

The wisdom and unconditional love of the author's mother, Irma, shines in this memoir. As McDonell grew up, Irma brought his late father to life, telling him stories of the fighter pilot who died when he was a baby. Her tales about his dad made real the father he never had, a fantasy figure he could look up to. Joe Knezevich narrates the author's internal dialogue as a child, as a man navigating his career, and as a father with his own sons who struggles with what life brings. These intimate reflections come through in Knezevich's even voice, which carries the wisdom that Irma provided the author throughout his life. It's clear she was always there for him even when life was too busy to stay in close contact. L.J.C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
