TOIL & TROUBLE A Memoir

by | Read by Augusten Burroughs, Gabra Zackman, Robin Miles, Anne Bobby

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

An ensemble cast supports Augusten Burroughs in the narration of his whimsical memoir, and it is a quirky romp indeed through a genuinely fertile imagination. He reveals, with his slow and sharply articulated wry drawl, that he is a witch, as are other members of his colorful family. Burroughs performs his own story with both the humor and pathos it requires. The supporting cast fleshes out his interactions with people around him--especially his mother and a favorite uncle (a reluctant witch himself)--and lays bare how witchcraft has continually intervened in their lives. While this work is not as focused as Burroughs's earlier memoirs, fans of his audiobooks will enjoy this original take on the magic in everyday life.
