An Entertaining Memoir About Getting a New Roommate—Your Mom
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.
Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss Dan Mathews’s entertaining memoir Like Crazy, about caring for his elderly mother in a raggedy old Virginia house. His voice is full of quiet amusement as he recounts the ups and downs of life with his larger-than-life mom, which includes spontaneous costume parties, vegan feasts, and home improvement mishaps. His lively, heartfelt performance adds a lot of depth to a lighthearted but ultimately moving book about a complicated mother-son relationship.
