GIRL ON THE BLOCK A True Story of Coming of Age Behind the Counter

by | Read by Billie Fulford-Brown

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Billie Fulford-Brown's inviting, friendly narration quickly draws listeners into the world of high-end steaks in this memoir about coming-of-age as a woman in the male-dominated field of butchery. Her measured yet easygoing tone perfectly captures Wragg's enthusiasm for the trade, as well as the pain and confusion of her youthful missteps. Wragg's analysis of sexism in butchery is surface level at best, as is her examination of the challenges facing the meat industry at large. But her struggle to reconcile the career she wants with the career she thinks she should want will resonate with those who have ever been unsure of themselves. Anecdotes of her time behind the block, combined with Fulford-Brown's engaging narration, make this an entertaining, though not revelatory, listen.
