Biography & Memoir • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

"Saturday Night Live" star Cecily Strong narrates appealingly, often with raw emotion that fits the harrowing losses she experienced last year--the death of a favorite cousin to cancer, a new boyfriend stricken with COVID, and an SNL friend succumbing to the virus. Her pacing and comedic timing make listening easy, even when compact stories and vignettes appear in rapid succession like comedy one-liners. Her New York City street smarts provide an interesting contrast to the richness of her emotional life and her connection with her cousin, Owen. Memories of her formative years and path to comedy fame are also fun to hear, but it's her resilience and hope that are featured in this remarkable audio. Drawing on what she gained from Owen's love and support, her touching reflections will continue inspiring long after this absorbing audio is finished.
