Lanny

LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019
By Max Porter
Narrated by Annie Aldington, Clare Corbett, David Timson & Jot Davies /  4 hours 34 minutes

Lanny

“The genius of Max Porter is that he can write a village in its entirety—a mother’s love for her son, a brilliant artist’s loneliness, a young boy’s whimsical adventures, a mythological creature’s inner monologue, a whole village worth of secrets and wishes and terrible thoughts—and make it into a bizarre but highly enjoyable little novel. You’ll find yourself thrilled by the dark humor Porter captures in his story of one village and its characters, both real and mythologized, as Lanny follows the eponymous young boy and the lives he impacts around him.”

The Guest Book

A Novel
By Sarah Blake
Narrated by Orlagh Cassidy /  16 hours 42 minutes

The Guest Book

“The Guest Book is an exquisitely written multi-generational novel about the Milton family. They are a family of wealth and privilege. Through the generations, the money dwindles away and the last generation is faced with the only option of selling it. The house sits on its own island and holds many secrets from the past generations. The characters are multi-dimensional and the relationships are complex. The narration of this book is pitch-perfect. The reader has a graceful, soothing voice that carries a tone of good breeding. Although I am glad that I listened to this book, I often found myself wishing that I could highlight some phrases and beautifully constructed sentences. This book was a delight to my ears. Sarah Blake is an extremely gifted writer. I look forward to reading many more of her books in the future. ”

From Scratch

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home
By Tembi Locke
Narrated by Tembi Locke /  10 hours 17 minutes

From Scratch

“I just finished wiping away my last tear as I close the curtain on From Scratch, a brilliant, compelling memoir. Tembi Locke lost her larger-than-life Italian chef husband at an early age to cancer. The book is a love letter to him as well as to enchanting Sicily and its aromatic, tantalizing food. But more than anything, it is the most memorable and thoughtful gift that her daughter will ever receive. I highly recommend the audio version which is read by the author. From Scratch is one of the best memoirs that I have ever read and one of my top five best books that I read this Summer.”

Courting Mr. Lincoln

A Novel
By Louis Bayard
Narrated by Tavia Gilbert & Robert Fass /  13 hours 27 minutes

Courting Mr. Lincoln

“This is a beautifully rendered, historically compelling exploration of the idea that the powerful and unseen gravitational force acting on what we know to have been a complicated courtship between Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd was Lincoln’s ambiguous friendship with Joshua Speed. Bayard’s complex characters live believably on these pages, reminding us that love is not—and never has been, even for the iconic figures of history—a this-or-that thing, but instead takes on many forms, depending on its circumstances. A great book club selection!”

Normal People

A Novel
By Sally Rooney
Narrated by Aoife McMahon /  7 hours 34 minutes

Normal People

“What a treat to discover Sally Rooney! This novel stands out shining from the current onslaught of mediocre prose and less-than-suspenseful thriller plots. Normal People is the story of a relationship between two high school classmates in a small town in Ireland, and how it changes over time, through their last year of college in Dublin. Rooney’s spare and brilliant writing illuminates her insight and makes the unfolding of these two personalities completely compelling.”

Save Me the Plums

My Gourmet Memoir
By Ruth Reichl
Narrated by Ruth Reichl /  7 hours 54 minutes

Save Me the Plums

“In her new memoir, trendsetting food writer and editor Ruth Reichl writes lovingly of the full-blast creativity of her 10 years as editor-in-chief of Gourmet. By book’s end, you’ll miss the storied and groundbreaking magazine, but you’ll be grateful she shared the tale of how its outstanding roster of writers, photographers, designers, and cooks transformed how we look at food. Reichl takes readers behind the scenes as chefs became rock stars, as writers like David Foster Wallace reshaped food writing, and as she fought to save the magazine she adored. A beloved writer with an enviable career, Reichl reminds us that although things may change, simple, honest pleasures — like a perfect plum — endure and make life rich.”

The Pioneers

The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West
By David McCullough
Narrated by John Bedford Lloyd /  10 hours 23 minutes

The Pioneers

“The Pioneers is a fascinating look at our nation trying to find its way in the years after the Revolutionary War. After securing our liberty, at the cost of thousands of lives, we turned our attention westward and to the promise held there. Of course, we were not the first to explore these lands west of New England. These new pilgrims met with both violence and hospitality from native people they encountered, and they returned both - perhaps not in equal measure. This is not just the story of how the Midwest was won, but also how the venture was financed. These expeditions were the Tesla & Uber stock of their day: high risk, and high reward. Also like today, those that profited the most were not always those placed in the most peril. Ultimately, you are left in awe of the perseverance of these settlers and the sacrifices that they made to establish our nation as it is today.”
