MODERN ROMANCE
by Aziz Ansari, Eric Klinenberg | Read by Aziz Ansari

The stand-up comic and actor shows his intellectual side in this research-based discussion of modern love. Aziz Ansari narrates his extended look at how Americans' marriage habits have changed since the 1960s. Ansari recounts the details of extensive surveys, interviews, and anecdotes in a conversational tone. He maintains a casual approach in explaining women's rights, divorce laws, and the early days of feminism. In true comedic style, he interjects jokes into the reporting and often expresses what the listener may be thinking during anecdotes. Ansari's interest in research may be surprising, but his humor is essential to keeping the listener engaged in this well-covered subject. M.R.
