Thinking Again, Jan Morris’s piquant, irreverent daily diary about life as a nonagenarian in the 21st century, is brought to vibrant life by narrator Jennifer M. Dixon. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss the late Morris’s observations on everything from world politics to neighborhood birds, aging, and family. Dixon is skilled at mirroring the author’s humor and essential kindness, encouraging us to savor her wisdom and honor her “equilibriumist” approach to life.
