Rachel Clarke’s authentic reading of her audiobook Dear Life allows her humanity to shine and her written words to be transformed into a moving listening experience. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this memoir by a British doctor and former journalist who works with patients at the end of their lives. Her proper British articulation and relaxed phrasing are soothing, which softens the harsh physical realities she encounters in her end-of-life medical practice.
