A STORY LATELY TOLD Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York

by | Read by Anjelica Huston

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 213

The first 20 years of Angelica Huston's memoir evoke a life of international celebrity in rural Ireland, the "go-go" '60s in London, and the fashion world in '70s New York. Her exotic and privileged lifestyle is evident, but Huston's careful enunciation and unvarying rhythm make it all sound disappointingly flat. While passages have many richly articulate and evocative word choices, Huston's voice and text reveal no self-examination or emotional connection. Author as narrator can be a satisfying pairing, often revealing to listeners, but in this audiobook Huston could be reading a phone book of famous names. This audio performance lacks any personal commitment and reveals little of the much admired actor. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
