SAY HER NAME is a beautifully written and beautifully narrated autobiographical novel of love, tragedy, and grief. Francisco Goldman met Aura Estrada when he was 47 and she was 25. He was a successful novelist, and she was a Ph.D. student and emerging writer. Only two years into their marriage, Aura was killed in a freak bodysurfing accident on a Mexican beach. Narrator Robert Fass has an appealing soft tone, impeccable timing, and an enviable ease switching between English and Mexican Spanish. Even more important is his sensitive rendering of Goldman’s emotions—from infinite gratitude and awe at meeting and loving Aura to shocking, soul-crushing guilt and loss following her death. It’s a stunning production that allows Aura to live on. A.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
