I CAN'T COMPLAIN (All Too) Personal Essays

by | Read by Elinor Lipman

Biography & Memoir • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

One couldn’t ask for a better narrator for this wonderful collection of personal remembrances than its author, Elinor Lipman. Lipman, who has written many acclaimed and popular novels, has a pleasant voice with the perfect lift and enthusiasm for the funny pieces; “Sex Ed” is one of the many laugh-out-loud essays in the collection. And her voice's gentle resonance enhances the most moving essays, including those that may make the listener weep. One of those, “Nine Months Passed,” about her beloved husband's illness and death, causes Lipman audibly to tear up and recover while reading. It's just such moments that make this a particularly special listening experience. Prepare to be enchanted. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
