UNFORGETTABLE A Son, a Mother, and the Lessons of a Lifetime

by | Read by Scott Simon

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

The familiar voice of NPR host and correspondent Scott Simon introduces listeners to a more personal side of his life in this audiobook, a memoir of his mother, Patricia Lyons Simon Newman, her colorful life, and her relationship with her only child. Based on Simon's tweets during his mother's final illness, and expanded to include additional reminiscences both positive and negative from mother and son, the book is an homage to a woman he clearly holds dear and who seemed to have touched everyone she met with her kind and positive disposition. Simon's radio background is evident in this production. His relaxed pace and pleasant vocal quality are conducive to easy listening. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
