I loved this combination of memoir, advocacy for local food, and treatise on farming. Kimball seamlessly wove together food, relationships, farming, hardships, and life story to create something well worth listening to. I found myself longing to head for a farm and grow all my own food. I cringed along with her at the experiences of slaughtering her first animals, and wondered what it would be like to eat only the things which I'd grown and raised myself. Definitely worth the listen!
The perfect accompaniment to my final few weeks of a nursing school acute inpatient psychiatric rotation. It was fascinating to see the process of the psychiatrist's thinking and to recognize how that differed from the nursing process I was learning.
Not quite what I was expecting, but funny none the less! Not sure what made it different from what I thought it would be, but I definitely enjoyed it. Worth the listen if you're eager for a laugh, and very well performed.
Eve Brown Waite's account of her time in the peace corp, marrying her peace corp recruiter, and their subsequent move to Uganda is at turns hilarious, poignant, and culturally informative while being unfailing honest in it's self reflection. Very much worth the listen for anyone who enjoys the unquestioning humor that always comes with overseas adventures!
Some Assembly Required reminded me all over again why I love almost everything that Anne Lamott writes. Part funny, part sad, part self-deprecating, part Jesusy, and oh so very earthy. I remembered why I love writing, why I love reading, why I love children and family, and why I love Jesus and how somehow all of those things go together. Absolutely worth listening to for anyone who is a fan of Lamott's work, or anyone who simply enjoys a well-crafted, very funny and poignant memoir.
