Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicole C. Kear

Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

When Nicole Kear was diagnosed with the degenerative eye disease retinitis pigmentosa at the young age of 19, she faced the grim prognosis of going blind within about 10 years. Narrating her own memoir with a darkly humorous and sarcastic touch, Kear tells listeners of her longtime denial of her condition, her struggle to come to terms with it, and her quest to live a full and adventurous life in the face of her dark prognosis. Her narration is self-effacing yet brash, with liberal use of profanities, conveying her deep frustration with her situation and fear of missing out on her children's lives. Her New York accent and intonation are down-to-earth and clearly convey her lively spirit. S.E.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
