MAY SARTON Excerpts From a Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andrea Itkin

Biography & Memoir • 4.25 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

"Old age is a foreign country, and one has to learn the language." This comment by writer May Sarton reflects the wide range of topics included in this thoughtful selection of Sarton's journals, memoirs and poetry. It provides those who would not otherwise read her works with an enticing perspective of a remarkable writer. Sarton provides a cogent introduction and recites "The Phoenix Again" while Andrea Itkin reads the majority of the work. Itkin has the ability to express rich emotions in vibrant tones, an important skill in such a contemplative and strikingly honest work. Finally, the brief piano interludes between segments allow the listener the necessary time to reflect upon Sarton's philosophies of life and writing. E.E.L.
