Audible Editor Reviews

The first thing listeners will notice is narrator Elisa Carlson's bright, compassionate voice. Her performance of this book is clear, precise, and yet quite emotional.

The novel's main character is Phyllis, portrayed as a women suffering from "empty nest syndrome". Almost ruthless in his contemplation, or study, of this woman, Pulitzer-winning author Frank Gilroy has made a real masterpiece in Anything for You.  Entertaining, yes - but this is a study of the human condition. Abandonment, longing, and loneliness are themes rippling under the surface of the audiobook's staid, matter-of-fact writing style.
