Autobiography Memoir Banner 2016

  • Born With Teeth by Kate Mulgrew, read by Kate Mulgrew

“Kate Mulgrew’s performance was as phenomenal as her memoir. Together, this experience reminded me of just how powerful and compelling a good memoir can be. I don’t often read much non-fiction. Books like this make me wonder why. I left Born With Teeth begging the universe via Twitter for a sequel. I want Mulgrew to keep writing her story. I will read anything she writes. If she narrates it as well, that will be the sweetest possible icing on the cake.”
