In heartrending detail, Emilie Pine shares her struggle to cope with her father's illness after his life of addiction. She delivers her narration like a sister confessing to sibling who is her shoulder to lean on. The result is a warm, slightly raspy delivery in which she reveals the details of corrosive liver disease and her own musings on mortality and blame. Her intimate story is made more so by the listening experience and will resonate with others who are struggling with ailing parents. Pine does a masterful job of creating multiple personas: her cantankerous father; the indifferent, overworked Greek nurses; and her equally worried sister.
