INCONTINENT ON THE CONTINENT My Mother, Her Walker, and Our Grand Tour of Italy

by | Read by Eileen Barrett

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

This memoir recounts a daughter’s experience traveling in Italy with her elderly mother, who has physical limitations. Jane Christmas tells of her experience in a way that is both comical and heartwarming. She not only experiences Italian culture but also learns more about her mother. Eileen Barrett lends a similar voice to both Jane and her mother, which reinforces the message that mothers and daughters can be so alike yet so different at the same time. She gives an accurate tone to a mother figure who criticizes and a daughter who can be at times both impatient and understanding. Barrett’s interpretations of the author’s inner thoughts are also quite humorous, and may sound familiar to some listeners. D.Z. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
