Reviews of Audio Books by Barbara Caruso
Reader: Barbara Caruso
Short Review: Atwood's Governor General's Award-winning bildungsroman about girls' cruelty to other girls, art, childhood, and memory; read crisply by Barbara Caruso. The book follows Elaine Risley, an artist, as she remembers her youth in Canada while preparing for a retrospective of her artwork. It is heartbreaking and beautiful, which makes it hard to listen to at times. Pain is perhaps more real when it's expressed out loud--this isn't a fun listen, but it's a very good one.
