Audiobook: Amy Falls Down by Jincy Willett

Amy Falls Down audiobook coverAmy Gallup owes her success to a conk on the head. It’s true. When she was young, she wrote a critically-acclaimed book and was dubbed a “writer to watch.” Fast-forward forty years, and she’s a sad subject of a “whatever happened to…” feature in a local paper. Right before the reporter arrives, she trips and hits her head on a birdbath, but apparently she gives good interview when she’s loopy, because now the public can’t get enough of her! Amy Falls Down by Jincy Willett is read to perfect effect by the talented Amy McFadden. Tone, pacing, characterization, and flow are not only expert in their own right but also entwine to show off this sly commentary on media, publishing, and audience with equal parts sweet and absurd.
