Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Caster Semenya, Becky Motumo-Molete

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Olympic medalist Caster Semenya engages listeners with this deeply personal memoir of her experiences amid the ongoing debate over fairness in women's sports. Semenya, who was raised a girl and has always identified as female, has naturally high levels of testosterone, which are known as "differences in sex development (DSD)." She's been forced to undergo invasive and humiliating "gender verification" tests, has had her private medical information released to the public, and more. Semenya, who narrates the prologue and epilogue, evokes a quiet determination and is steadfast in who she is. While narrator Becky Motumo-Molete's voice is dissimilar to Semenya's in pitch and pace, her graceful performance channels the same resoluteness and stoic authenticity that Semenya does. An intimate and thought-provoking listen filled with complexity and resilience. V.T.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
