Random House presents the audiobook edition of Educated by Tara Westover, read by Julia Whelan. Tara Westover grew up preparing for the End of Days, watching for the sun to darken, for the moon to drip as if with blood. She spent her summers bottling peaches and her winters rotating emergency supplies, hoping that when the World of Men failed, her family would continue on, unaffected. She hadn’t been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she’d never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn’t believe in doctors or hospitals. According to the state and federal government, she didn’t exist. As she grew older, her father became more radical, and her brother, more violent. At sixteen Tara decided to educate herself. Her struggle for knowledge would take her far from her Idaho mountains, over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she’d travelled too far. If there was still a way home. EDUCATED is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty, and of the grief that comes with the severing of the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, from her singular experience Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes, and the will to change it. *Earphones Award Winner for Audiofile magazine* 'A beautifully written memoir.' - J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy 'Marvellous. There is no feeling like discovering a young writer who is springing up fully armed with so much talent.' - Stephen Fry ‘A striking story, beautifully told. Tara is an incredible new talent . . . I was holding my breath through parts, willing her to be okay.’ - Cathy Retzinbrink, author of The Last Act of Love
