“I could stand on the Rue de Rivoli: BEING,” says Goldberg. By the time I reached side four, I wished that she would. Her French accent is abysmal, and her Latin is off, too (“ik cetera” for “et cetera”). Happily, most of this audiobook is in English, or some version of it made up of psycho-babble and cosmic abstractions. At best, Goldberg’s voice is incantatory, and she has a habit of beginning new sections without pausing so that different topics are oddly juxtaposed. However, this book treats writing as a spiritual practice. This is a smart idea that works. Goldberg projects warmth and genuine kindness to the listener and passion for the act of writing.
