I think they're both good, but Susan Denaker does a fantastic job of bringing the narrator of these stories to life.
The poignancy of the narrator's interaction with her parents, particularly in The Labrador Fiasco, is particularly memorable, perhaps because it seems to be an issue that many people may be facing when caring for aging parents. The final words of this chapter seem to be both heartbreaking and reassuring. She is there for her father, but there's still a certain amount of fear in his demeanor that is difficult to overcome.
Of course, it would be the author, who seems to have some very autobiographical elements in her writing. I would love to open a bottle of wine with Margaret Atwood and ask her how she manages to write such realistic characters.
This is a fantastic book and a wonderful rendition as an audiobook. I greatly enjoyed it!
