AN ELEPHANT IN MY KITCHEN What the Herd Taught Me About Love, Courage and Survival

by | Read by Roshina Ratnam

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Roshina Ratnam drops listeners straight into the African bush, conveying the urgency and passion of running Zululand's Thula Thula Game Reserve and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. As the memoir opens, Ratnam is perfectly understated when voicing Malby-Anthony's shell-shocked bewilderment at her husband's sudden death. She must continue running their reserve on her own, working as a businesswoman, conservationist, and writer. Listeners joyfully follow the author's daily interactions with the reserve's highly intelligent wildlife. However, her world constantly balances between wonder and heartbreak. The visceral and relentless horrors of poaching sound all too real as Malby-Anthony describes her efforts to protect, and often rescue, the animals she knows intimately. Ratnam's performance brings dignity to the complex emotional lives of the audiobook's animals. J.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
