The imaginary walks and doggerel poetry that sustained Dr. Edith Bone through seven years of isolation in a Hungarian prison in 1949 inspired author Michael Harris as well. He's interested in solitude, the sort that nurtures creativity and healing. Kerry Shale's reading delivers lots of information clearly as Harris discusses technological developments that threaten our solitude today. While much of Harris's book is critical of those developments, Shale also captures Harris's humor and occasional indignance. Listeners will share Harris's admiration for young hikers who occasionally practice a "designated texter" deception to get free of tech for a day. Harris winds up his story with a week offline at a cabin in the woods, leaving listeners to consider their own need for solitude. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2017]
