Staff Picks: K.

As someone who enjoys reading the same book in both print & in audio, the narrator is obviously the make or break factor in the listening experience. Below are some of event & outreach coordinator K.'s favorite vocal performances of 2023, from full-cast audiobook experiences, to one person who has the tremendous capacity for voicing multiple POVs, to nonfiction writers adept at reading their own work (it’s its own skill!).

Chain Gang All Stars

National Book Award Finalist

By: Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah
Narrated by: Shayna Small, Aaron Goodson, Michael Crouch & Lee Osorio
Length: 13 hours 38 minutes

“This book rocked me to my core. Adjei-Brenyah's writing is soul-shifting. He gives us a devastatingly unvarnished look at the US carceral system and a warning for what may to be come. The deep, multidimensional characters evoke empathy, empowerment, and sometimes disgust. I have never read a more evocative work of fiction. The audiobook is worth... Read more

Pageboy

A Memoir

By: Elliot Page
Narrated by: Elliot Page
Length: 8 hours 23 minutes

Pageboy is a quietly powerful, captivating memoir with a small amount of salacious-ness. Elliot Page is so earnest, vulnerable and generous with his heartbreak, dysphoria, pain and healing. I was particularly struck by the many poignant and relatable moments Page describes, yet we, as a society, have only recently come up with the language to... Read more

Quietly Hostile

Essays

By: Samantha Irby
Narrated by: Samantha Irby
Length: 9 hours 31 minutes

Quietly Hostile only reinforced the love I already have for Samantha Irby’s writing. I love listening to frank and humorous way she tackles everything from relationships to Red Lobster to bodily functions. Her books, especially the audio recordings, are always ones I look forward to! Read more

Tell Me I'm Worthless

By: Alison Rumfitt
Narrated by: Nicky Endres
Length: 8 hours 32 minutes

“The haunted house at the center of the novel is old. It carries a history of violence that has painted its walls both literally and metaphorically with blood.
