MODERN LOVE True Stories of Love, Loss, and Redemption

by | Read by Susan Bennett, Will Brill, Michael Crouch, Kevin R. Free, Emma Galvin, Catherine Ho, Robin Miles, Maggi-Meg Reed, Sean Runnette, Gabra Zackman, Daniel Jones

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Eleven narrators perform the 40 pieces gathered in this collection of essays originally published in the NEW YORK TIMES's "Modern Love" column. The personal and revealing sketches included in this audiobook touch on many aspects of love. For example, Sean Runnette captures both the humor and the frustration in a story of a romantic date that ends up in the emergency room, and Catherine Ho delivers a sensitive and lively performance of an evangelical woman who discovers her true love may not be the church but a woman in her Bible group. Other essays involve themes of marriage, transgender, adoption, sperm donation, dating after divorce, widowhood, online dating, disabilities, and parenthood. Listeners will find no weak links; the pairings of narrator and essay are spot-on. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
