Big Swiss

A Novel

By: Jen Beagin
Narrated by: Rebecca Lowman, Carlotta Brentan, Stephen Graybill, Joy Osmanski & Matt Pittenger
Length: 11 hours 15 minutes

I laughed out loud on every other page, rolled my eyes at the pervasive hipster things Big Swiss pokes fun at, and thoroughly enjoyed the quirky atmosphere. Raging feminism, bunk... Read more

By: Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Ramon de Ocampo
Length: 12 hours 15 minutes

“Fresh, irreverent, and funny, Red, White & Royal Blue is a delight and a treasure.

Severance

A Novel

By: Ling Ma
Narrated by: Nancy Wu
Length: 9 hours 53 minutes

“A disaffected young woman just scraping by in the big city. A rag-tag group of survivors on a journey through a post-apocalyptic landscape.

In an alternate 2011, Shen... Read more
