CLAY AND BONES My Life as an FBI Forensic Artist

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christina Delaine

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Christina Delaine narrates with such an engaging conversational tone that listeners will feel they're active participants in this memoir by the FBI's first female forensic sculptor. One minute Delaine urges listeners to prepare for a grisly discussion of forensics practices; the next she's describing hostile bullying by a male manager. The range of the material is broad, and Delaine complements each scene with an apt interpretation. She reflects Bailey's marvel at the near-magical path she followed to find her career, neutrality while describing the many clues skulls provide for facial approximation, and horror at how institutional sexism threatened to rob her of work she loves. Delaine embraces it all with passion whether the subject is satisfying scientific and artistic breakthroughs, employment discrimination, hypocrisy, or justice. S.W.
