Irish writer Sinéad Gleeson's light, musical voice is as mesmerizing as her prose in this collection of essays about living in a body. Gleeson explores many topics but always returns to bodies, especially women's bodies. She writes about blood, bone, illness, pregnancy, and motherhood, along with music, love, art, grief, and ghosts. She's interested in the ways these disparate ideas, experiences, and identities manifest in our bodies. Though the essays are mostly personal, she also examines the work of artists, writers, and thinkers who have influenced and inspired her. Her narration is lovely and warm; her voice is especially poignant in the essays about her Irish childhood and the 2018 abortion referendum. This is a quiet and thoughtful audiobook, beautifully written and narrated. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
