A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York

Anjelica Huston, read by the author. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4423-6159-1
This first installment of a planned two-part memoir by actress and former model Huston focuses on her childhood as the daughter of film director John Huston and his fourth wife, a young ballerina. Most of the author’s early years were spent abroad, particularly in the west country of Ireland, so here listeners are occasionally treated to a hint of brogue. Huston reads her memoir in a quiet voice, betraying little emotion but showing flashes of affection for her father (who, in one memorable scene, gambled the last of their household money for a Monet) and her mother (who was tragically killed when Huston was just 17). Huston’s low, rich voice adds a certain darkness to this audio performance, even when she’s recounting lighter tales, and her wry humor is evident when she describes the hijinks that ensued at the many house parties her parents hosted. A Scribner hardcover. (Nov.)
