Jan Morris's piquant, irreverent daily diary about life as a nonagenarian in the 21st century is brought to vibrant life by narrator Jennifer M. Dixon. As she did in her first book of jottings, the famous Welsh author and historian, who died in 2020, observes everything from world politics to neighborhood birds--from aging, family, and love to the pleasures of jam on toast in front of a crackling fire. Dixon's mature voice nicely represents the author's age without sounding old and conveys the midrange sound of the writer who transitioned 60 years ago. Dixon's sympathetic reading and attentive pacing also highlight Morris's humor and essential kindness, encouraging us to savor her wisdom and honor her "equilibriumist" approach to life. A.C.S.
