I'VE TRIED BEING NICE (Among Other Things): Essays

by | Read by Ann Leary

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Bestselling novelist and memoirist Ann Leary performs her new collection of essays about her life after she decides to stop being a people pleaser. From uncomfortable experiences with neighbors who keep their dogs off-leash to trying to be extra kind to fans of her husband, entertainer Denis Leary, Ann Leary shares her thoughts on aging and moving away from her desire to keep everyone else happy all the time. Leary's narration is a hilarious combination of sarcastic delivery and witty thoughts that often lead to laugh-out-loud moments. Her narration allows listeners to enjoy her incredible sense of humor, as well as her feelings about the complications of life and figuring out what is truly important.
