Milkman

By Anna Burns
Narrated by Bríd Brennan /  14 hours 11 minutes

Milkman

“The unnamed protagonist of MILKMAN stands out for the wrong reasons. She reads while walking, for one; she's been taking French night classes downtown; and she goes running by herself through the streets of her unnamed city under the control of an unnamed government and filled with the violence of an unnamed civil conflict. Then, when a local paramilitary named Milkman begins pursuing her, she suddenly becomes "interesting," the last thing she ever wanted to be. Set amidst the Troubles in Northern Ireland, MILKMAN is a relentless, incisive, claustrophobic, and darkly funny book about the power of gossip, rumor, insinuation, and how to carry on in a community where the wrong flag, the wrong religion, or even a sunset can be subversive and dangerous. Because MILKMAN is written in such a breathless torrent of language, the audiobook and its reader (with her fabulous Irish accent) taps into the conversational and emotional cadence of its narrator so well I couldn't stop listening.”

The Way to the White House
By Richard Ben Cramer
Narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright /  54 hours 34 minutes

The Trial of Lizzie Borden

By Cara Robertson
Narrated by Amanda Carlin /  11 hours 46 minutes

The Trial of Lizzie Borden

“Cara Robertson's first book details the events surrounding the infamous murders of Andrew and Abby Borden in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1892. Based entirely on primary sources: trial transcripts, contemporary accounts, and even recently discovered letters from Lizzie herself, The Trial of Lizzie Borden is an in-depth discussion of the circumstances surrounding the incident and Lizzie's subsequent trial. Robertson has poured decades of research into this sensational book, breathing new life into a story that has captivated the american psyche for over a century. An excellent read for fans of David Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon and Michelle McNamara's I'll be Gone in the Dark.”
