I am a fan of Professor Lepore and read her articles in the New Yorker. All but one essay, and the introduction, are reprints from that magazine, I believe. The stories are engaging, and her prose style is very easy to following. I am not a huge fan of the narrator, Colleen Devine. I cringe when she mispronounces such words as Edinburgh and stave. She did, however, guide me to the correct pronunciation of Jacobian. I thank her for that. I have listened to many narrators, and have my favorites, like everyone else,
I love this author and I love this performer.
Rushdie is very funny and insightful. Like all good works of literature, deserves multiple reading and need to read lit crit.
