Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Sitting down with Anne Tyler is like getting together with a friend: you reminisce, question, share daydreams, and laugh. Her latest novel is full of interesting, real people--people who bravely change or stubbornly refuse to, people who are funniest when they aren't trying to be. Even though Rebecca is the woman of the first line ("Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered she had turned into the wrong personÉ"), her journey to self-awareness is free from whining. The listener commiserates with her about the choices we make and the turns we miss in life. Blair Brown works her usual magic in the reading--she has a friendly voice, and she understands the humor and gives each character her own personality without being strident.
