Part Swan, Part Goose: An Uncommon Memoir of Womanhood, Work, and Family Audiobook

Part Swan, Part Goose: An Uncommon Memoir of Womanhood, Work, and Family

Author: Joni Rodgers, Swoosie Kurtz Narrator: Swoosie Kurtz Release Date: April 2014

In a wise, warmhearted memoir that celebrates her extraordinary life and stellar career, Swoosie Kurtz shares just the right combination of personal misadventure and showbiz lore, candidly reflecting on the right choices that empowered her, the wrong choices that enlightened her, and the intimate journey of caring for an aging parent. Animating this remarkable memoir is Swoosie's relationship with her equally remarkable parents. Her father, Frank, was an Olympic athlete and highly decorated World War II airman. He flew a record number of missions in a cobbled-together B-17D called the Swoose. Her mother, Margo, was the quintessential military wife but with the spunk and will to match her husband's. Her 1945 memoir, My Rival, the Sky, chronicled their lives up to the time of the birth of their daughter. Today, Margo, who is fast approaching her hundredth birthday, lives with Swoosie. And Swoosie's life has become a precarious and precious balancing act as she struggles to stay ahead of her mother's increasing needs while navigating a showbiz career that keeps one foot in Hollywood and the other on Broadway. **Includes a PDF of a digital photo gallery The critics love Swoosie Kurtz.... "Inimitable...one of the best comic actors of our time." -USA Today "[An] expert comic actress...may just be the most seductive woman on the New York stage right now." -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times and "full of surprises...expressive...devastating...unforgettable." -Ben Brantley, The New York Times

The Guys Audiobook

The Guys

Author: Anne Nelson Narrator: Bill Irwin, Swoosie Kurtz Release Date: August 2002

First performed in a hit off-off-Broadway production, and soon to be a film starring Sigourney Weaver and Anthony LaPaglia, The Guys is a timeless drama about the surprising truths people can discover in ordinary lives, and the connections we make with others and ourselves in times of tragedy. Paralyzed by grief and unable to put his thoughts into words, Nick, a fire captain, seeks out the help of a writer to compose eulogies for the colleagues and friends he lost in the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001. As Joan, an editor by trade, draws Nick out about “the guys,” powerful profiles emerge, revealing vivid personalities and the substance and meaning that lie beneath the surface of seemingly unremarkable people. As the individual talents and enthusiasms of the people within the small firehouse community are realized, we come to understand the uniqueness and value of what each person has to contribute. And Nick and Joan, two people who under normal circumstances never would have met, jump the well-defined tracks of their own lives, and so learn about themselves, about life, and about the healing power of human connection, through talking about the guys.
