LADYSITTING My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lorene Cary

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Lorene Cary does a fantastic job narrating her outstanding memoir, shading it with the nuanced emotions it requires. In a wonderfully paced storytelling voice, she captures the reverberations that occur when her grandmother, who lived to be over 100, moves into her home. Her story is filled with all the love, pain, frustration, guilt, sadness, and, most of all, the appreciative sense of humor that caring for her aged Nana engenders. Cary's knack for re-creating scenes and voices--especially that of Nana herself--is remarkable. Listeners will smile, laugh, and often nod as this audiobook explores both the complexities of a particular family's history and those of eldercare itself. Insightfully written and beautifully read, LADYSITTING is a bighearted, fully human story that is likely to touch a wide audience of listeners. J.C.G.
