The Best Cook in the World

Tales from My Momma's Table
By Rick Bragg
Narrated by Rick Bragg /  19 hours 15 minutes

The Best Cook in the World

“This is the funniest cookbook in the world! Packed with old fashioned southern recipes, Bragg's brilliant storytelling and old black-and-white photographs bring his relatives to life. From lost cows to dead hogs to giant turtles, his stories feature grandparents and great grandparents, aunts and uncles. But most of all, his mother's voice comes through loud and clear. More than anything, you are taken by the back-and-forth between Bragg and his down-to-earth, matter-of-fact, shy but feisty mother. I absolutely loved this book! And I recommend the pecan pie!”

Lake Success

A Novel
By Gary Shteyngart
Narrated by Soneela Nankani & Arthur Morey /  13 hours 31 minutes

Lake Success

“When Barry Cohen’s marriage and hedge fund company begin to crumble, he hops a Greyhound bus to El Paso, hoping to find himself among the ‘real Americans’ of the Trump era. Meanwhile, the wife he left behind struggles to build a solo life among the one percent. Together, their stories are a biting portrait of a country unimproved by the best of intentions. Equal parts Sense and Sensibility, AConfederacy of Dunces, and Bonfire of the Vanities, Lake Success is a wickedly funny satire and a rollicking good story for tough times.”
