NOTES FROM A BLACK WOMAN'S DIARY Selected Works of Kathleen Collins

by | Read by Nina Collins, January LaVoy, Robin Miles, Bahni Turpin, Adenrele Ojo, Mari Mari

Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

NOTES is a thought-provoking audiobook best consumed slowly, leaving time for reflection on editor Nina Collins's reason for including each piece in the collection before taking in another installment. Collins, the author's daughter, says her intent is to show her mother's literary range. Each narrator provides a new experience for each literary offering, whether it's prose, an incomplete screenplay, or a letter. The well-known narrators give gravitas to the disquieting truths about a black woman's interior life. The most fascinating part of this work is the narrators' care with the plays and screenplays. Each narrator follows the author's stage directions, lending sorrow, surprise, haughtiness, and fear to the various characters. This is a work that will be listened to--even if only in parts--time and again. M.P.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
