YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ
Pat T. is using 2 formats to the same end. “I recently read, as well as listened to the audio of Dept. of Speculation, by Jenny Offill. This novel is a stream of consciousness of a woman known only as the Wife who invites the reader into her thoughts on all the conditions of life: issues of love, trust, betrayal and the complexities of marriage; motherhood and the all-consuming demands of parenting a child; professional ambitions and the conflicts between personal and professional choices. I liked listening to this story, more so than reading, because the narrator captured the emotions of the wife’s angst and musings on the everyday issues of life.”
