Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Personal history and public biography are the focus of this semi-autobiographical work. Here Patricia Bosworth reveals the public and private lives of her father, Barltey Cavanaugh Crum, California lawyer and politico of the 1930's and '40's who was a patron of Wilke, and a communist ultimately blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee; and her unusual, extremely social mother, Cutsy. Delfino takes the listener through Bosworth's life in a nonstop, pell-mell race of words and description while barely coming up for a breath of air. One minute of inattention and the gist of the vignette is lost. Describing family interactions, tensions and more, Delfino delivers insights using minimal inflection to differentiate characters and personalities, returning again and again to the fast-paced narrative of Bosworth's tale.
