WHY FISH DON'T EXIST A Story of Loss, Love, and the Hidden Order of Life

by | Read by Lulu Miller

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Lulu Miller's friendly, curious voice braids together history, biography, and memoir. The former host of the NPR podcast "Invisibilia" introduces listeners to taxonomist and former Stanford president David Starr Jordan, famous for his work classifying fish. Initially, Miller is inspired by Jordan because he personifies resilience after his life's work seems to have been destroyed by an earthquake. But she also uncovers his darker side while researching. Miller has a slightly husky down-to-earth voice, and her storytelling background in radio infuses her work. Her confident delivery is playful and comfortably paced, her narration engaging and easy on the ear. When Miller deals with subjects like depression and loss in her own life, it's especially meaningful knowing she's experienced the stories and insights she shares.
