It's a brave writer who risks reading his or her audiobook. But the few who do it well, such as David Sedaris and Dave Barry, make the chance worth taking. Now Sloane Crosley joins that elite club with a funny, poignant collection of essays about her life as a child, a world traveler, and a single working woman trying to make it in Manhattan. Her slightly nasal voice makes her words seem real. She sounds like the person who has lived the words as she talks chattily about being lost in Lisbon and Paris, feeling out of her element in Alaska, and handling a clothes-stealing, near-psychotic roommate in New York. Who can’t use advice like that? M.S. 2011 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
