Publisher's Summary

In Feral City poet and essayist Alison Luterman combines her talents to explore a topic near and dear to her heart: love partnerships. These five chapters explore her own experience going through an early and exciting marriage, divorcing, spending many years alone, and then opening up to a new partner and marrying again at age 50. The stories are set in Luterman's funky Oakland, California, neighborhood and tackle the tough and tender issues of relationships, from fighting to making up to figuring out whose turn it is to feed the abandoned kittens in the basement. An entertaining collection, full of honesty, empathy, and humor.

Alison Luterman has written three books of poetry, The Largest Possible Life (which won the Cleveland State University Poetry Prize), See How We Almost Fly (which won the Pearl Poetry Prize), and Desire Zoo. Luterman's personal essays have appeared in Salon, the Sun magazine, the L.A. Review, and the New York Times' Modern Love section. She has written half a dozen plays, including a musical about kidney transplantation.

Saying Kaddish with My Sister, her first full-length play, was produced in 2008 by the Jewish Ensemble Theater of West Bloomfield, Michigan. Luterman has been an adjunct instructor in the Writing and Consciousness MFA program at New College and has taught poetry and memoir at Holy Names College in Oakland, the Writing Salon in Berkeley, and the Esalen and Omega Institutes.

This is a short audiobook published by Shebooks - high-quality fiction, memoir, and journalism for women, by women.

    Story
    "Great story...bad narration!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book but not the audiobook. I read one of the essays from this book in The Sun magazine and I've read lots of Alison Luterman's writing. Her "voice" is lovely and distinctive. I feel like I would recognize her voice anywhere! I mistakenly thought that she had narrated the book and felt really weird when I heard the actual narrator. Too young!! Too WASPy!! And her timing was AWFUL, particular during the narration of Alison's poems. Ick!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Feral City?

    When the narrator is nursing the abandoned kittens.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tiffany Morgan’s performances?

    Doubt it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Hard to say. Maybe if the actors were even semi-believable, which this narrator was not.
