THE WINDOW SEAT Notes from a Life in Motion

by | Read by Aminatta Forna

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

With an African father and a Scottish mother, novelist, essayist, and BBC Radio commentator Aminatta Forna was destined to travel. So it makes complete sense that many of the essays in this thought-provoking collection address family and home. Is home Scotland, where she was born? Or Sierra Leone, where she saw her father fight and die for freedom? Or is it Tehran, where, as a teenager in 1979, she witnessed the Iranian revolution? Whether she's discussing the perils of sleep, sexual harassment, or her love of dogs, tones of Africa and a Highlander's lilt can be heard in Forna's voice. Forna sounds like she's at home anywhere in the world. B.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
