Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Frank McCourt

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Frank McCourt’s memoirs of his impoverished childhood shows his great humanity. When he delivers his story directly to the listener, we are transported. We weep and laugh. The production shows the wonderful dynamism of an audiobook performance. McCourt sings the songs his mother sang. He chants the patriotic ballads his father woke him up with. His clarity of voice and depth of feeling are delivered directly. Don’t miss this, it’s an exceptional audiobook. R.F.W.
