This is Jim Hart's story: how he survived a violent childhood home, how he overcame obsessive dependencies, and how he finally found the strength to be his true self. A master at building relationships, Jim is charming, funny, and a great listener. His success in life and business was based on his ability to connect with others, from people recovering in 12-step groups in upstate New York to those living in the rarefied air of Martha's Vineyard.

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

Would you consider the audio edition of Life After Life to be better than the print version?

I ENJOYED THE STORY BUT SINCE I LISTENED TO IT WHILE WALKING AND STOPPED IS UNTIL THE NEXT WALK, I LOST THE CONSISTENCY OF THE STORY. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE STORY AS I DID LIKE THE SUBJECT AND THE CHARACTERS.

What did you like best about this story?

THE CHARACTERS WERE VERY INTERESTING

Which character – as performed by Fenella Woolgar – was your favorite?

MY FAVORITE WAS URSALA.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

THE PART ABOUT THE WAR.

Would you consider the audio edition of My Mother Was Nuts to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book as reading puts me to sleep.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Mother Was Nuts?

Hearing all her interactions with other stars.

What about Penny Marshall’s performance did you like?

I love her accent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I think Penny is refreshing and truthful. I don't think her mom was nuts just a little eccentric.

Any additional comments?

This book made me laugh and that is good for you. I couldn't wait to get back to listening to Penny moderate.

I enjoyed hearing Patrick again and sharing in his life's highs and lows. I always enjoyed his dancing and acting and this made me feel that he was still with us. I can understand Lisa's loss as I too have lost my husband at a young age and my heart aches for him still.
