Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kim Schraf

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Leah Hager Cohen slows down the rat race. She begins her book in a Massachusetts café, observing the things most people take for granted: the morning paper, a steaming glass mug of coffee. With eloquent realism, Cohen offers listeners the immediate and ancient history of everyday objects like glass, paper and beans. Kim Schraf does an excellent job lending her voice to Cohen's message with an upbeat delivery and an instinctive humor that makes her performance fun and accessible. More than anything else, listeners will achieve an appreciation for objects in life that may seem unimportant but that still have the power to affect us deeply. R.A.P.
