Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Nan McNamara gives a nuanced performance of this audiobook revolving around a well-known feminist writer whose ordered existence in New York City becomes compromised by a medical diagnosis. The imposing 75-year-old Florence Gordon lives an independent life and has little contact with her family. Then her son, Daniel, a Seattle police officer, travels with his wife, Janine, and their teenage daughter to New York. McNamara seamlessly meets the novel's shifts in point of view, precisely expressing the characters' struggles with aging, identity, career, romance, marriage, and each other. She keeps the plot flowing despite the pauses necessitated by short chapter breaks. This audiobook will be savored by those who enjoy contemplative character-driven stories.
