THE WAY THROUGH THE WOODS On Mushrooms and Mourning

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Bernadette Dunne leads listeners through this memoir, which winds through the author's inner landscape of grief into her growing absorption with the world of mushrooms. Woon's fascination with foraging for mushrooms began the day her life as she knew it ended--when her husband and soulmate died suddenly. In freefall, she found answers on how to go on living where she least expected--through the study of fungi, which became her lifeline in her dark hour of need. (She and her husband had been signed up to take a beginner's class on identification before his death.) Dunne captures the author's growing joy and reawakening appetite for a meaningful life. As the author explores both mushrooms and mourning, Dunne entertains and educates listeners on both subjects, moving back and forth between the two.
