UNBECOMING A Memoir of Disobedience

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Anuradha Bhagwati

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Forthright and uncompromising, Anuradha Bhagwati narrates her memoir with same strong voice that her prose exhibits. Bhagwati takes listeners through her life as a Marine after graduating from Yale. Following an honorable discharge, Bhagwati dedicated herself to fighting the military's culture of gender discrimination and sexual abuse. She recounts intense and painful experiences during her service, sharing incidents of misogyny that led to her work fighting social injustice. Throughout, Bhagwati never aligns herself with easy left or right political sides; she sees allies and calls out threats across the spectrum. Listeners unfamiliar with military culture may find some moments of the story difficult, but this is in keeping with Bhagwati's uncompromising style. Her direct approach to this audiobook is a service to all listeners. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
