This is a real treat.Thoroughly enjoyable. Well-written, good stories, genuine. Some funny, some poignant, an engaging self portrait of an interesting, clever, caring human being who has entertained us in many ways for many years. And this is one of those memoirs that's enhanced because it's read, and read well, by its author. Her inflections add to the humorous story-telling, but her emotional inflections in describing family events also connect to the listener in a universally human way.
A rich, intensely written and narrated novel. Oscar Hijuelos' descriptions are lyrical, sensual and bold, his characters fully developed, touching and believable. Narrator Armando Duran is a master of nuanced delivery, capturing emotion and inflection, engaging the listener by his precise and seamless shifting between Cuban and American accents among the characters. A wonderful listen.
