Whereabouts

A Novel

By Jhumpa Lahiri
Narrated by: Susan Vinciotti Bonito
Length: 3 hours 23 minutes

Whereabouts

“The latest story from Jhumpa Lahiri is told gently, quietly. It’s about a woman, told in her own voice—filled with everyday commonalities that explain little and yet reveal much. The words are lovely, sad, sometimes hopeful, but often disappointed. The author has shared with us a vision of life lived by another and yet there’s something about her that is so familiar. 'Could she be me?' some will ask. 'Am I, too, that private—known only to myself?' Whether or not you follow the author’s work, you’ll treasure this small offering to life, to unknown love, to memory. It’s one to read over again many times. I know I will.”

Caul Baby

A Novel

By Morgan Jerkins
Narrated by: Joniece Abbott-Pratt
Length: 10 hours 52 minutes

Caul Baby

“There are so many books coming out that are just checking the boxes on hot topics and the story often times doesn't incorporate the boxes well. This does. It is so true and forceful in it's writing that you feel as though you are there in the story. It's an important book, one that should be shared and talked about. If you want to experience someone else's life run to the bookstore and grab a copy. Brilliant. I listened to it and gripped the wheel in parts. The lives of the women making up this story are so twisted together and mesmerizing. So many of us have suffered a miscarriage but what we do after is where this story starts. How far will we go. AMAZING”

Gold Diggers

A Novel

By Sanjena Sathian
Narrated by: Rama Vallury
Length: 10 hours 20 minutes

Gold Diggers

“Gold as a drug. Gold as a metaphor for the glittering hopes and burdens new immigrants put on their children’s shoulders. Gold as the thread weaving history, memory, and imagination, a meditation on how the past blends into the present. Gold as the object of an improbable heist. There is so much in this book, but it is first and foremost an extraordinarily good yarn, the story of two generations of American-Indian immigrants trying to become Americanized while clinging to a fetishized, culturally commodified India. There is love, drugs, alchemy, and stories about the gold rush, both the forty-niners and the new gold diggers of the tech bubble. It’s fun and fast-paced, except when you stop short for a sentence so evocative you want to dwell on it. A seriously good book by a seriously talented writer.”
