Acclaimed writer Anne Boyer offers a genre-bending audiobook about cancer--its multiple contexts and the ways she herself was impacted by her treatment for breast cancer. Amy Finegan's performance showcases a wide palette of dramatic tools, all perfectly matched to every thought-provoking idea in this meditative work. Whether narrating Boyer's personal experiences or from a more universal perspective, Finegan's interpretations and overall performance are outstanding. Also extraordinary is the range of issues Boyer writes about, such as medical economics, technology, and the political and cultural biases of medical care, to name a few. This is philosophy brought down to earth, illustrated vividly by Boyer's own experiences as a patient, stories about other cancer victims, and the writings of other thoughtful authors. T.W.
