Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake

Anna Quindlen, read by the author. Random House Audio, unabridged, six CDs, 7 hrs., $40 ISBN 978-0-307-98986-4
A bestselling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Anna Quindlen shares her thoughts on aging, family, marriage, and other slice-of-life topics in this reflective memoir. Although there’s nothing startling or groundbreaking here, her wit and thoughtful insights on these universal issues will have listeners recognizing themselves and nodding their heads in agreement. As a narrator, Quindlen’s performance is familiar and intimate: her voice brims over with warmth, wisdom, and self-deprecating humor, and she sound much like a friend who has stopped by for a visit and a cup of coffee. Fans of Quindlen and listeners in general will be more than glad to invite her in (via audiobook) to sit for a spell. A Random House hardcover. (Apr.)
