With wry humor and a good dose of self-deprecation, TV writer Kari Lizer reflects on being an empty nester when her children go off to college, leaving her alone with several dogs and chickens. Lizer's voice enhances the essays with her animation, warmth, and a healthy dose of prickle. She spies on her son's texts, tries to resist the impulse to read about Kate Middleton's bangs because nobody writes about Prince William's hair, and gives a warm coat with $20 in the pocket to a homeless man but waits until some people come out of a restaurant nearby so they'll know she's a good person. Lizer receives a little bit of help from additional narrators as she writes about a TV pilot that explores her abandonment issues. A.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
