Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The trailblazing author writes with the equanimity of her 78 years and the perspective of someone with her world-class résumé. Narrator Bernadette Dunn, with her sturdy vocal personality and a captivating performance, delivers Sheehy’s story with the stature and strength that a memoir from such an iconic author demands. Listeners will feel the force of Sheehy’s character and her lifelong drive to not let demeaning stereotypes of women keep her from her life’s work. Dunn is especially sensitive interpreting dialogue and rolling with the subtle shifts in tone and momentum that make Sheehy’s writing so absorbing. With the pathos it deserves, she captures the book’s meta-theme—the fascinating intersection of Sheehy’s brave career path and her lifelong refusal to deny any part of what it means to be a woman.
