Listeners will hear the admiration in television writer Bess Kalb's voice as she expresses the determined spirit of her beloved grandmother, Bobby Bell, with whom she shared a special bond. As Kalb recounts their many conversations, listeners will come to share in her pride in her grandmother's wise counsel. Kalb's narration flows from one anecdote to another, allowing listeners to piece together Bobby's history, and that of Bobby's mother, father, and other relatives, who emigrated to America from Russia. While Kalb does not attempt to imitate the voices of her relations, she creates vivid characterizations with slight shifts in intonation and pitch. Bobby's remembrances do not shy away from the enormous difficulties of those times, which will bring comfort to listeners facing today's struggles.
