“Will I ever listen to a better audiobook? Anna Burns has written a masterpiece and Brid Brennan has performed the work to stellar effect. This performance of Milkman helped me understand that audiobooks are a distinct art form of their own, not unlike a theater production. You’ll want to start again from the beginning the minute you finish.”Stephanie, Community Bookstore
In this unnamed city, to be interesting is dangerous. Middle sister, our protagonist, is busy attempting to keep her mother from discovering her maybe-boyfriend and to keep everyone in the dark about her encounter with Milkman. But when first brother-in-law sniffs out her struggle and rumours start to swell, middle sister becomes interesting‚Äîthe last thing she ever wanted to be. To be interesting is to be noticed, and to be noticed is dangerous. Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is a story of inaction with enormous consequences.
