In Our Mad and Furious City

A Novel

By Guy Gunaratne
Narrated by: Ben Bailey Smith & Lou Marie Kerr
Length: 6 hours 45 minutes

In Our Mad and Furious City

“This book was one of THE big novels of spring 2018 in the UK, and I’m here to say it’s thoroughly deserving of the hype. The book chronicles 48 hours on a London council estate (“housing project”) from the perspective of five of its residents and makes moving poetry out of the gritty ugliness of life. It’s beautiful, moving, and important.”

I Love You Too Much

By Alicia Drake
Narrated by: Aaron Landon
Length: 6 hours 57 minutes

I knew I was in Paris, I knew that was the Seine beneath me, the sky above, but when I looked around for help, the grand apartment buildings of the Quai Voltaire stared back at me, indifferent.

The Party

By Elizabeth Day
Narrated by: Greg Wagland
Length: 10 hours 46 minutes

The Party

“The novel opens with Martin being questioned in a police station. We soon find out that something happened at his upper-class best friend Ben’s fortieth birthday party, and as the book goes on we follow the trajectory of the party and look back over Martin’s life, providing the context and background to help us understand the significance of the events. The writing is gorgeous, I enjoyed the scenes at Cambridge, and it has some searing commentary on the British establishment.”

Anatomy of a Scandal

A Novel

By Sarah Vaughan
Narrated by: Julie Teal, Luke Thompson, Esther Wane & Sarah Feathers
Length: 10 hours 55 minutes

Anatomy of a Scandal

“I don’t read a ton of thrillers, but this one was all over British publishing social media and it caught my eye, and I’m so glad it did! I knew as soon as I read it back in January that it would be my favourite book of the year, and that’s held true. It’s about an MP who is accused of sexually assaulting one of his staff, and it’s told from the point of view of both his wife and the barrister who is prosecuting him. It’s so well written, so well observed, so timely and it’s a scathing indictment of the ruling classes – which is always cathartic.”

Dear Mrs. Bird

“What initially seems like a breezy career girl story quickly turns into a gripping novel set in the WWII London blitzkrieg.

All too soon, she and her friends become victims of the bombings and must deal with losses and new horrors each night. In Dear Mrs. Bird, AJ Pearce has given us a most memorable story about both the visible and hidden casualties of war. Recommended for all, including book clubs!”

“What a fun read! Libby Page does a great job telling the story of a small London town pool and the people who make it an important part of their lives. The friendship between Kate and Rosemary, despite their age difference, is so well-developed and plays an integral role in the story. The Lido is a book that every summer reader will enjoy and one that will be great to talk about at book clubs. Very well done, Libby Page!”

The Chilbury Ladies' Choir

A Novel

By Jennifer Ryan
Narrated by: Various
Length: 11 hours 33 minutes

The Chilbury Ladies' Choir

“This gorgeous novel grabbed me from the very first page with laughter and kept me hooked with characters that are vivid and lovable. As each woman shares her place in the intrigue, romance, sorrow, and friendship of Chilbury and World War II through letters and diaries, their lives become increasingly real, until you can hardly believe this is fiction. At the center of the story is the indomitable Chilbury Ladies' Choir and when their individual triumphs and sorrows wind together during their performances, Ryan's writing reaches a soulful crescendo that will continue to echo in readers' hearts. Fans of Helen Simonson should not miss this beautiful debut.”

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

“What a joyous, charming, funny and beautiful celebration of books and the people who love them. There is so much detail in both the wonderful, wide-ranging cast of characters and in the setting.
