Summary
"An astounding tale about a dangerous quest in an eerie post-climate collapse world. Twenty-five years earlier, when the Vanderchucks followed their neighbours into the Underground, Jesse thought that was it. Then Jesse's little sister, Olivia, ran away, and their mother died. Now, years later, Jesse meets a talking dog and everything changes. Fighting illness and a hostile world with no sympathy, Jesse and Doggo embark on a fool's errand to find Olivia -- or die trying. Along the way, Jesse spins a series of stories from threads of memories, weaving together the past, present, and future."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"...the decided advantage of the audio book is that it is read by a cast of stars as long as your arm — thanks to Nevins' considerable achievements in television and production...This is choice listening for the car, as the stories are short and thus lend themselves to erranding and other short hops." Fran Wood, NJ.comThis program is read by the author and a full cast: Cynthia Adler, Alan Alda, Bob Balaban, Christine Baranski, Kathy Bates, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Katie Couric, John Henry Cox, Blythe Danner, Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Tovah Feldshuh, Diane von Furstenberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Diane Lane, Sandra Lee, Judith Light, Jenna Lyons, Audra McDonald, Janet Mock, Sheila Nevins, Rosie O'Donnell, Jean Richards, RuPaul, Liz Smith, Lesley Stahl, Gloria Steinem, Martha Stewart, Meryl Streep, Marlo Thomas, Lily Tomlin, and Gloria Vanderbilt."Thank you to Sheila Nevins for putting all this down for posterity. Women need this kind of honest excavation of the process of living." —Meryl StreepAn astonishingly frank, funny, poignant audiobook for any woman who wishes they had someone who would say to them, "This happened to me, learn from my mistakes and my successes. Because you don't get smarter as you get older, you get braver."Sheila Nevins is the best friend you never knew you had. She is your discreet confidante you can tell any secret to, your sage mentor at work who helps you navigate the often uneven playing field, your wise sister who has "been there, done that," your hysterical girlfriend whose stories about men will make you laugh until you cry. Sheila Nevins is the one person who always tells it like it is. In You Don't Look Your Age, the famed documentary producer (as President of HBO Documentary Films for over 30 years, Nevins has rightfully been credited with creating the documentary rebirth) finally steps out from behind the camera and takes her place front and center.In this program you will hear about the real life challenges of being a woman in a man's world, what it means to be a working mother, what it's like to be an older woman in a youth-obsessed culture, the sometimes changing, often sweet truth about marriages, what being a feminist really means, and that you are in good company if your adult children don't return your phone calls. So come, sit down, make yourself comfortable, and slip on those headphones. You're in for a treat.
