Nobody Will Tell You This But Me
A true (as told to me) story
By Bess Kalb
Narrated by Bess Kalb / 4 hours 21 minutes
“Bess Kalb, a writer for many comedy series and Jimmy Kimmel Live, shines in this quirky memoir of her beloved (and opinionated!) grandmother. Told in voice messages which alternately exhort and praise, she relays the love that she and her grandmother Bobby Bell share. In a more unusual style, she tells Bobby’s immigrant story and the fraught relationships with both her mother and daughter as if Bobby is speaking from the grave. It's short and oh so engaging.”Valerie, Blue Willow Bookshop
