Listen / Purchase


A Long, Long Time Ago & Essentially True is a beautifully written book by Brigid Pasulka, and lovingly narrated by Cassandra Campbell, which has not gotten as much play as it deserves.  The story moves back and forth from past to present to tell the story of Beata, a young woman living in the later days of Communist Poland, and her grandparents’ harrowing tale from an earlier time. Deeply moving, often funny, and ultimately hopeful, and read with great care and dedication (and a flawless Polish accent!) by one of our favorite narrators, we find ourselves recommending A Long, Long Time over and over again to friends looking for a wonderful listen.


What the critics say

“One of the reasons I chose this audiobook was that I was hoping to be blown away by Cassandra Campbell’s performance. Well, I was. What amazed me about her reading wasn’t just her ability to pull of authentic Polish characters, but the way she managed to make each character distinctive.”
