In this episode 207, we visit with Nancy Stancill, author of Tall: Love and Journalism in a Six-foot World, an authentically written and compulsively readable memoir of Nancy’s life from gangly teen to investigative reporter.
Author Judy Goldman, author of Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap, has this to say about the book: “In journalist Nancy Stancill’s masterful hands, this memoir about the struggles and satisfactions, bonuses and betrayals of being a very tall woman is not only wonderfully absorbing; it is also instructive. Whether you’re a six-footer or you top off at five feet, the book is a reminder that how you measure yourself is more of a determiner of your success and well-being than any measure on a yardstick. Stancill gets it just right. “Tall is a glorious book, fully alive.”
