Chloé Cooper Jones’s memoir, Easy Beauty, is made even more personal with her narration of the audiobook. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this exploration of the author’s physical disability and her fight to thrive in spite of the constant judgment, pity, and prejudice of others. Jones offers a profoundly honest examination of society’s standards of beauty and desirability and insightfully explores disability, parenthood, relationships, and more.
