Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, for anyone who has either had a problem with too much stuff of their own or had frustration with others close to them who have too many things. The author crafted a sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing, but always captivating story about a gifted and eccentric artist and the life events that lead her into years of hoarding. I'm going to recommend it as my book for our book group.
What other book might you compare Objects of My Affection to and why?
Unlike anything else I have read. Novel topic and a great listen.
Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were many moving moments. I was most moved when Marva, the artist who generally seems cold, unfeeling, and disconnected, is able to show compassion for Lucy, a personal organizer hired to help her, in her relationship with her son.
Any additional comments?
Besides being a fun listen, the author has given me some food for thought about what I value in life and what I should do about it.

This was an interesting story about a woman who is hired to convince a cantankerous, aging artist de-clutter her house against her will. The story kept me intrigued but I felt the author didn't include enough about the artist's hoarding, given that this was the whole raison d'etre for the novel. A good book for listening to while you are driving or doing other tasks - engaging and well written, but not so laced with literary imagery that you have to concentrate deeply to follow the story.
