Author and narrator Tovah Feldshuh’s memoir, Lilyville, is a highly entertaining look back at her life as a successful stage and screen actor, and an unsentimental remembrance of the force of nature that was her mother, Lily. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Sandi Henschel discuss this audiobook that does recount some sparkling open nights and backstage love affairs, but is mostly about Feldshuh’s admiration and undying love for her mother. Feldshuh’s career and her complex relationship with Lily make this top-notch listening.
