Orange Prize-winning author Suzanne Berne's A Perfect Arrangement is the thought-provoking story of a typical, small-town family entering a confusing time in their lives. When the Cook-Goldmans hire a new nanny for their children, but fail to check her references carefully, their convenient arrangement soon leads to a string of troubling events.

After EVERY SENTENCE, the narrator pauses, inhales, unsticks her tongue from the roof of her mouth and loudly swallows. Jeez woman, drink some water! You know you're going to be on an audio recording for literally HOURS! Try being prepared, eat a cough drop, buy some mouth spray, SOMETHING!!!
It's so distracting I barely knew what was going on with the plot. She sounds like she just ran a 12 hour marathon in the desert.
