In her memoir, Martha Wainwright's tone and lyrical phrasing have a wistful quality that make her sound at once vulnerable and strong--a survivor of something difficult. Though she is part of a musical dynasty--her brother and mother were also musicians like her father, Louden--her speaking voice and perspectives communicate a fierce independence from the family dynamics she endured. Expressed gracefully in her affecting speaking style, her thoughtful reminiscences will inspire hope for anyone whose life has both tragic and deeply satisfying elements. Her search for her artistic voice has taken her to acting and to moderate success as a musician, but her thoughtful insights and silky writing will make many listeners wish she would put more of her energy into the written word.
