GOOD BOY by Jennifer Finney Boylan, read by Kelsey Navarro

Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine

Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss Jennifer Finney Boylan’s memoir, telling the story of her life centered around seven dogs she loved. Boylan is a writer, a columnist for the New York Times, and a professor at Barnard College. Kesley Navarro narrates with warmth and highlights the author’s wry humor. Each dog’s story pivots around crucial moments in Boylan’s life, from a childhood rambling about in the woods with her father’s ridiculous dalmatian, to her retriever-chow chow mix full of scorn for her family. Boylan is trans, and she speaks about feeling as though she has been many people throughout her life—with a canine companion for each of those seasons. Hers is an insightful and intimate memoir.
