Actress Kate Mulgrew delivers an emotive and finely tuned performance of her newest memoir, which centers on the period of time when she returned to her Iowa hometown to care for her dying parents. The book explores the often painful yet loving dynamics of their large Catholic family and examines how her parents' dissimilar temperaments and complex relationship shaped the lives of Mulgrew and her seven brothers and sisters. Mulgrew's writing, which tends toward the self-consciously literary, is nonetheless analytical, moving, and visually detailed. She reads with exquisite articulation and well-attuned pacing in her famously smoky voice, which makes one want to kick back and listen while sipping the Mulgrew family's favorite scotch.
