A Noise Downstairs

A Novel
By Linwood Barclay
Narrated by George Newbern /  9 hours 8 minutes

A Noise Downstairs

“If you’re looking for a wild ride, look no further, because you’re not going to get wilder than A Noise Downstairs. For a book that seems to have a little of everything — unresolved trauma, untrustworthy characters, a mysterious typewriter, and a hefty dose of the paranormal — Barclay tells his story with a smooth ease that will pull you through the pages at a breakneck speed. And, well, no spoilers, but the ending will blow your socks clean off.”

My Year of Rest and Relaxation

By Ottessa Moshfegh
Narrated by Julia Whelan /  7 hours 14 minutes

My Year of Rest and Relaxation

“At first, My Year of Rest and Relaxation feels like the end of something, like a novel about the end of someone’s life. But Moshfegh has a way of affirming life unlike any other author. Repercussions of grief, emotional exhaustion, and the general anchors of life hurl a young woman into the warm embrace of the idea of hibernating for a year. Of course, this cannot be so simply done. In true Moshfegh fashion, this journey is brimming with laconic humor, her brand of ne’er-do-wells, and ample substance intake, which all lead to one of the most existentially satisfying reads in recent memory.  ”
