A born storyteller, singer-songwriter Liz Phair exchanges guitar strumming for typing with this memoir--which she also narrates. It's a collection of stories told in no particular order, highlighting the impact of small moments. Phair describes the wound it is to be human, to have memories and, consequently, regret, guilt, and love. The stories are mostly relatable, but the vivid imagery she uses is what will pierce listeners to their core. Phair lets her impeccable writing shine in a steady voice that is almost flat at times. Her tone suggests that the passage of time allows her to share vulnerable moments. For a childhood story, Phair instills emotion into her delivery with a shriek and terrified cry for help. Interludes of Phair's music between chapters round out this dynamic listening experience. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
