Biography & Memoir • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

This biography of Bess Truman, written by her daughter, lends itself well to audio. Narrator Hershberg's voice is pleasant and clear although the beginning seems a little rushed. Much of the book consists of reading from the letters of Harry Truman to his wife and daughter. The tone of narration changes when quoting Harry Truman, but the narrator's voice is better suited to the feminine roles. This is just fine, as the book is a daughter's reminiscences of her mother. This is a good choice where there is a demand for biography. C.A.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 93]
