YOU DON’T LOOK LIKE ANYONE I KNOW: A True Story of Family, Face Blindness and Forgiveness by Heather Sellers


“In her memoir, professor and author Heather Sellers comes to terms with her inability to recognize faces, a lifelong neurological affliction. In this work she recounts how her condition affected her as a child growing up in an eccentric family and how it affects her as an adult. Narrator Karen White does an admirable job giving voice to Sellers’ chaotic life. Such a story—of marriage and divorce, a schizophrenic mother and an alcoholic father, along with Heather’s inability to recognize people’s facial features—could easily be presented in an overdramatic manner. Instead of succumbing to this pitfall, White manages to imbue Sellers’s words with appropriate emotion. Her skillful narration communicates the turmoil that Sellers has endured. Author and narrator will have listeners hanging on every word.” J.L.K. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
