Narrator Bahni Turpin has the perfect voice to deliver Zora Neale Hurston's lively autobiography. Throughout the audiobook, listeners accompany Hurston from a rambunctious and peripatetic childhood in Florida to groundbreaking ethnic research in the Bahamas, and places in between. With a soulful lilt, Turpin brings Hurston's lyrical stories alive in listeners' imagination. She gives voice to diverse people as Hurston cavorts with celebrities of the early twentieth century, including singer Ethel Waters and writer/photographer Carl Van Vechten. If Hurston had to buoy her own self-confidence in her early years, she doesn't admit it. These loosely connected folk stories reflect intelligent wandering rather than a quest.
