THE UNSPEAKABLE And Other Subjects of Discussion

by | Read by Meghan Daum

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Personal essayist and LOS ANGELES TIMES columnist Meghan Daum writes about herself. Topics include her move to Los Angeles, her mother's death, her dog's death, her marriage, and her career. Daum maintains a careful balance between whiney self-involvement and self-deprecating charm in the face of profound and universal issues. When a personal essayist reads her own work, she adds another layer of self-reflection. Through the audiobook, the listener senses Daum's reactions to her own writing and her own conduct. Not surprisingly, Daum likes most of what she reads. She is only occasionally amused, embarrassed, or appalled. Although not an voice actor, Daum has a good speaking voice. She is a good clear reader with a good sense of timing and pace. F.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2015]
