THE DARING LIFE AND DANGEROUS TIMES OF EVE ADAMS

by | Read by Romy Nordlinger

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Historian Jonathan Katz has provided a welcome and nuanced biography of an early-twentieth-century lesbian activist and author who has been almost forgotten except by archivists. Sadly, this revelatory account of Eve Adams (née Chawa Zloczower) and her roles as Emma Goldman's friend, Henry Miller's associate, a Polish-Jewish immigrant, and an anarchist suffers in this audiobook edition. Narrator Romy Nordlinger's overly bright tones, audible breathing, and odd pacing, which renders sentence clauses emphasized in odd ways, can't seem to get a handle on the narrative's parts or its elegant whole. While pronunciations of names that range from Yiddish to New York state's anglicized Dutch place names are largely correct, the overall effect disappoints.
