STILL HERE The Madcap, Nervy, Singular Life of Elaine Stritch

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andrea Burns

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Andrea Burns is amazing! Her performance of NEW YORK TIMES editor Jacobs's charming, well-researched look at the life of actor Elaine Stritch (19252014) is at once intelligent, amusing, and illuminating. In her seventy-year career, Stritch made her own rules, struggled with alcoholism, won awards, and knew many of the most famous authors, actors, and power brokers of the period. Burns's delivery of the many quotes by the madcap, nervy, singular Stritch is a small miracle. She sounds enough like Stritch to be absolutely convincing while maintaining energetic, credible voices for the many people whose lives Stritch touched. Well-earned name-dropping flows affectionately through Stritch's story, including those of dear friends, work rivals, lovers, composers, producers, and fellow actor/celebrities. Wonderfully entertaining listening. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
