Big As All Hell And Half Of Texas: Memoirs of Marlayna Glynn Brown Volume 3

Category : Nonfiction
Language : English
Gender : Female
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Engaging
Performance Notes
Following the author's wildly beloved award-winning Overlay and City of Angeles memoirs, Big as All Hell and Half of Texas continues the author's story. This final volume candidly explores the pertinent societal question: how does an ill-equipped adult child of alcoholics navigate life after a childhood fraught with abuse, scarcity, and neglect? Continuing her engrossing journey from the moment City of Angeles ends, the author shares the vignettes of her life - replete with enlightening mistakes, edifying consequences, forgiveness and personal redemption. Big as All Hell and Half of Texas is an honest and inspirational account of the author's ultimately successful battles with depression, divorce, single parenting, and ill-fitting love affairs. "This memoir is a journey in self-examination lived not as a victim but as a searcher always hoping that the universe will smile the next day. The author asks several questions of herself. Perhaps the most searing query is, 'Why am I not enough?' The answer suggested is that finding someone who sees any one of us as enough is a challenge that may consume a lifetime. And, perhaps, even more critically, is that moment when we find that we are more adequate than we believed, that those who reject are more deeply wounded or lost than we imagined. ©2012 Marlayna Glynn Brown (P)2015 Marlayna Glynn Brown

Performance Notes
Publisher's Summary Jess Morgan will never return to Destiny Falls. Nine years ago, a logging accident near the remote timber town killed her dad and her high school sweetheart. Despite her broken heart, her mother immediately sought comfort with another man. That choice tore Jess apart and drove her to seek a life far away. Now she’s successful and happily settled in Toronto. Or is she? When her stepfather dies, Jess can no longer stay away from home. Her plan is simple; visit just long enough to persuade her mom to come live with her. Surely healing the rift between them will fill the emptiness she's felt for far too long. But when she lands in Destiny Falls, someone unexpected is waiting for her at the airport. Adam Wright. Adam plans to live in Destiny Falls forever. He loves every aspect of small-town living and his job that takes him regularly into the bush. He remembers Jess as a cute teenager who hung around with his little sister, so when he's asked to pick her up at the local airport, he's not prepared for the polished woman who steps off the plane. Soon Adam's happiness is more wrapped up in Jess than his home or work, but while he could give up everything and move back to Toronto with her, he senses that won't make either of them happy. How can he get her to give Destiny Falls a second chance? It will take a combined effort from everyone in town who loves Jess Morgan, plus a little charm from the local landscape itself, to convince her to give her to rethink her future plans. ©2011 Cindy Procter-King (P)2012 Cindy Procter-King

Performance Notes
In this powerful and provocative new memoir, award-winning author Lauren Slater forces readers to redraw the boundary between what we know as fact and what we believe through the creation of our own personal fictions. Mixing memoir with mendacity, Slater examines memories of her youth, when after being diagnosed with a strange illness she developed seizures and neurological disturbances-and the compulsion to lie. Openly questioning the reliability of memoir itself, Slater presents the mesmerizing story of a young woman who discovers not only what plagues her but also what cures her-the birth of her sensuality, her creativity as an artist, and storytelling as an act of healing.

"The Man on the Ceiling" was published in 2000. It is told in alternating voices, Steve, Melanie, and an omniscient one. Melanie first sees the man on the ceiling and Steve tries to deal with him, even when he steals one of their children. This seems to be about their collaborations and ends the volume nicely.--Review by Sam Tomaino for SFRevu

Abby Elvidge is an actress-turned-Paleobotanist-turned Voice Actor. Abby plies her skills of late to audiobook narration with a keen ability at characterization. Recently she was an Audie Award Finalist in 2015 “GADZOOKS!” ​ Most recently Abby narrated the bestseller, “GRUNT: The Curious Science of Humans at War” by Mary Roach, to astounding reviews, particularly from the author. Mary Roach wrote, "I won the vocal-cord lottery when Abby Elvidge took an interest in narrating GRUNT. She is perfect for the project: energetic, friendly, and right on the mark with her tone and inflection.” ​ Abby teaches at The Voice Actors Studio in Las Vegas and with Patrick Fraley, Scott Brick and other Audiobook Luminaries. Over my 42 years teaching and performing, I have come across a few performers that make me think about being an agent. Abby Elvidge is one. Everytime I hear her, I get get sucked into the vortex of her spooky-good storytelling skills. Will someone convince Abby Elvidge to go public? I want stock in this gal. -Patrick Fraley, Teacher/Performer Abby was such a perfect narrator for my first book that I hired her for the next two. Her skill was evident when she was able to successfully narrate a character who progressively aged from 4 to 44 over three books. I had many, many requests to narrate and could not be happier to have chosen Abby. Aside from her narration skills (including nailing the character voice and perfect timing,) she was professional and a joy to work with. She completed all projects before they were due. Abby's a pro from start to finish! Thank you for all your work Abby! -Marlayna Glynn Brown, Award Winning Memoirist/Photographer Every word that is spoken by Abby Elvidge radiates a kind of magic hard to describe.
