The Salt Path | Raynor Winn
post image
Pickpick

After a devastating medical diagnosis, Raynor & her husband Moth also lose their home & their livelihood. They choose to hike The Salt Path, a hiking trail along the southern coast of England.

Such a tough listen, w/ Moth‘s diagnosis of corticobasal degeneration, their sudden homelessness, & their experiences dealing w/ people‘s biases against the unhoused. But Raynor‘s voice is strong & hopeful, & visceral in painting the landscape. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Twitter coming in hot with the commentary on Mary Rodgers' excellent memoir! Though she is often recognized in connection with her legendary composer father, Richard Rodgers, and her Tony award-winning son, Adam Guettel, Mary was an award-winning composer and author herself. Come for the scathing one-liners and take-downs (Arthur Laurents gets gloriously dragged); stay for the honesty of a woman who was outspoken, complicated, and gutsy as hell.

willaful Does it mention her children's books? 1d
Andrea313 Yes, she discusses that writing later in the book, and touches very briefly on the various film adaptations, too. 1d

Fantastic!

I remember very well when Nirvana and grunge came on the scene in the 90s.

Dave Grohl, of course, covers that time period and much more in this memoir that is eloquently told.

I suggested listening with my husband while on a drive, and he kept asking to listen to more in the following days. You guys - that is not like my husband and speaks volumes as to this audiobook.

LiteraryinLawrence What a good sign! 2d
rachelk I loved it too! He really comes across as a good guy. I thought it was funny to think of him getting star struck when he‘s such a huge star himself. 2d

Verghese wrote two of my favorite works of fiction so I had to read his memoir about his time as an infectious disease specialist in Johnson City, TN during the early days of the AIDS crisis. His perspective as an immigrant was really unique I thought and the stories of his patients were very touching. This was another Verghese five star read for me.
