Dusk, Night, Dawn by Anne Lamott, Read by the Author
Exploring Life, Faith, and Her Own Humanity
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Anne Lamott’s reading sounds relaxed at first, but as the audio unfolds and listeners come to know how she sees the world, her tone and pacing begin to sound beautiful. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Anne Lamott’s narration of her memoir Dusk, Night, Dawn, and how her stream of consciousness style is well suited to audio. She’s a snappy storyteller who charms with her self-effacing perspectives and humanitarian sensibilities. Lamott’s observations, heard in her own voice, are a wonderful way to tap into some of her warmth and wisdom.
Support for our podcast comes from Oasis Audio, publisher of Frankenstein, a breathtaking Audie-nominated full-cast performance of the stage adaptation by A.S. Peterson.
