Avid readers of Wolitzer's work won’t be disappointed by this new audiobook. The subject matter is timely, and Rebecca Lowman's narration is perfect. Similar to Wolitzer's previous novel, THE INTERESTINGS, this piece follows a realistic cast of characters from youth to adulthood, capturing their trials and triumphs along the way, particularly from a feminist point of view. Lowman moves adeptly among all types of voices and situations, never slipping into melodrama or monotone. In fact, Lowman often crosses into that ineffable narrative zone wherein she herself disappears and the story alone takes center stage. There may be moments when the authorial tone tries too hard to convince us, but Lowman always returns the listener to an empathetic place with warmth and skill. L.B.F.
