By Brian Morton
Narrated by Dawn Harvey / 7 hours 14 minutes

A wise and entertainingnovel about a woman who has lived life on her own terms for seventy-five defiantand determined years, only to find herself suddenly thrust to the center of herfamily’s various catastrophes

Meet Florence Gordon: blunt, brilliant, cantankerous, andpassionate, a feminist icon to young women. At seventy-five, Florence has earned her right to set downthe burdens of family and work and shape her legacy at long last. But just asshe is beginning to write her long-deferred memoir, her son Daniel returns toNew York from Seattle with his wife and daughter, and they embroil Florence intheir dramas, clouding the clarity of her days with the frustrations ofmiddle age and the confusions of youth. And then there is her left foot, whichis starting to drag.

With searing wit, sophisticated intelligence, and a tenderrespect for humanity in all its flaws, Brian Morton introduces a constellationof unforgettable characters. Chief among them is Florence, who can humble thefools surrounding her with one barbed line, but who eventually finds there arerealities even she cannot outwit.
