She lives in Nashville Tennessee where she is the co-owner of Parnassus Books. From AudioFile The author of BEL CANTO reads this memoir of her friendship with writer Lucy Grealy author of AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A FACE which chronicled the story of her facial deformity. Patchett gives a clear and pleasant voice to the twenty-year relationship spanning the women's days at the famed University of Iowa Writing Program their ambitious salad days and Patchett's struggles to support Grealy as she put herself in the hands of countless plastic surgeons who made promises they could not keep. Patchett applies a sometimes tender sometimes whining tone to Grealy's exuberant yet obsessive expressions of love and neediness toward her friend. At some points one wonders why Patchett's narration doesn't interject more emotion. But by book's end the listener senses that Patchett has triumphed in reading this heartbreaking remembrance which ends with Grealy's death in 2002 without allowing her voice to crack.
