STARSTRUCK A Memoit of Astrophysics and Finding Light in the Dark

by | Read by Sarafina El-Badry Nance

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Astrophysicist Sarafina El-Badry Nance's honest and unadorned performance invites listeners to share experiences both universal and deeply personal. Her youthful voice frays as she opens up about the mix of uplifting and negative experiences she had as a biracial Egyptian American girl in Austin, Texas, and the misogyny that pervaded her collegiate career. Her memoir is strongly centered on touchstone relationships as she describes connections between the events of her life and cosmological topics such as dark matter, space-time, and our expanding universe, as well as formative, relationships with her parents, professors, and therapists. The author's partnership with an abusive boyfriend in college is a particularly visceral listening experience, performed with intense feeling. El-Badry Nance shares hard-earned lessons of healing and pursuing dreams that will surely resonate with many. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
