AudioFile awarded Isadora by Amelia Gray an Earphones Award for the historical fiction about American Ballet performer, Isadora Duncan. Narrator Jen Tullock was praised for making recognizable “shifts [in] her vocal register” and the ability to distinguish characters’ “personalities one from another with canny intonations”. Isadora Duncan is known as the “mother of modern dance” and famous for her unconventional free-flowing and naturalistic dance movements. Isadora takes listeners through the experience of the real-life tragic event of Duncan’s accidental death of her two children, and the toll it took on her stardom and mental state. Gray’s creative style of storytelling and Tullock’s accents and ability to create drama, make Isadora an incredible and haunting audiobook.
