This is an audiobook for people who want to know who was Beyoncé before Beyoncé, or Madonna before Madonna. Josephine Baker led a life that sounds more like that of a character in great literature than a groundbreaking entertainer, civil rights champion, and possible spy. But Baker was all of this and more. She was an international star, and Jones's fictionalized account of her life, as narrated expertly by Adenrele Ojo, is certain to enthrall and possibly inspire. Ojo's pacing and passion for the story of Baker's life come shining through. Listeners will be left with a deep appreciation for a woman whose life began in tragedy, included countless trials of the spirit, and ended in triumph. This is a riveting listen.
