Eating is an everyday act that just about everyone in the developed world takes for granted. However, for Reiner, eating became an impossibility when a tragic medical crisis forced him to rest his digestive tract and use a feeding tube for months. This compelling audio edition of Reiner’s fascinating and heart-wrenching memoir features an inspired and intimate performance from narrator Dan John Miller. His delivery is well paced and steeped in genuine emotion—and at times it feels as if Miller is channeling Reiner. The result is a compelling listen in which Miller speaks to listeners as if they were in the same room. It’s a conversation they won’t want to end. A Gallery Books hardcover. (Sept.)
