Why Do I Love These People?

Miracalous Journeys of Twenty-first Century Families

Read by: John Dossett
Po Bronson takes us on an extraordinary journey

Calling upon his gift for powerful nonfiction narrative and philosophical insight Po Bronson explores the incredibly complicated feelings that we have for our families.

Each chapter introduces us to people and we come to know them intimately, following the story of their relationship as they struggle resiliently through the kinds of hardships all families endure. Some of them manage to save their relationship, while others find a better life only after letting the relationship go. From their efforts, the wisdom in this audiobook emerges. We are left feeling emotionally raw but grounded -- and better prepared to love, through both hard times and good times.

In these mesmerizing stories, we discover what is essential and elemental to all families and slowly abolish the fantasies and fictions we have about those we fight to stay connected to.

In Why Do I Love These People?, Bronson shows us that we are united by our yearnings and aspirations: Family is not our dividing line, but our common ground.
