Acclaimed 84-year-old memoirist and journalist Vivian Gornick enthusiastically narrates her most recent compilation in which she reflects on her rereading of novels that she enjoyed as a younger woman. She also incorporates episodes from her life, including a lively piece on her two cats, much of which will be familiar to listeners of her earlier memoirs, including FIERCE ATTACHMENTS. With her warm and inviting voice, listeners will feel as though they are having a personal chat with Gornick. While she carefully dissects serious works from such authors as D.H. Lawrence, A.B. Yehoshua, Colette, and Natalia Ginzburg, her conversational tone is engaging. Listeners can focus on select chapters featuring their favorite authors or, better still, sit back and enjoy hearing all of her astute observations.
