By Retta
Narrated by Retta /  6 hours 55 minutes

So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y'all Don't Even Know

“This is totally delightful and insightful. The Queen of Treat Yo Self reads her book of essays, and she manages to discuss topics such as race, body image, friendship, handbags, and other things with a sense of levity that doesn’t undermine each topic’s seriousness. Definitely a fun read/listen!”

JELL-O Girls

A Family History
By Allie Rowbottom
Narrated by Allie Rowbottom /  7 hours 43 minutes

JELL-O Girls

“An absolutely fascinating memoir that combines a personal family account with one of America’s most recognizable foods. Seamlessly exploring the foundation of her family’s wealth and the seemingly cursed lives of three generations of women, Rowbottom has written a page-turning cultural history that hits on both the nostalgia many associate with Jell-O and the societal forces that propelled the brand.”

From the Corner of the Oval

A Memoir
By Beck Dorey-Stein
Narrated by Beck Dorey-Stein /  9 hours 53 minutes

From the Corner of the Oval

“A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting book that makes public service, working for POTUS, a job in the White House a worthy occupation. An insider's personal account, it gives details about the the president and numerous others either identified or disguised as well as the inevitable personal pot holes that make the book a sort of novelization. By the way, who knew that "stenographer" is still an active job title. Fans of "Madame Secretary," political junkies of many stripes and those longing for a return to a sense of normalcy in the White House will pick up this book with gratitude.”

Florida

Narrated by Lauren Groff /  7 hours 59 minutes

Florida

“This collection of short stories take place in Florida, but this is no Disney World! Dog snatching alligators, hurricanes and lurking panthers-just a few of the dangers in this well crafted book. I especially enjoyed "At the Round Earth's Imagined Corners"”

Tin Man

A Novel
By Sarah Winman
Narrated by Sarah Winman /  4 hours 33 minutes

Tin Man

“Saying I loved this book would almost feel like an understatement. The minute I started reading it I got pulled in and couldn't stop until I was done. With beautiful prose, Sarah Winman tells a warm and utterly heart-breaking story. Ellis and Michael are connected, seemingly by fate, at the moment in their lives when they both lose their mothers and need to feel connected to someone. And the connection they make is the one that lasts a lifetime, the one that gets them through, and can't be broken even with the years they spend apart not knowing what the other is doing. Told from both Elli's and Michael's perspective, Tin Man is a story of loss, pain, secrets and shattering loneliness. But above all it’s a story of love and friendship, the need we all feel, to be connected and to belong.”

The Mars Room

A Novel
By Rachel Kushner
Narrated by Rachel Kushner /  9 hours 41 minutes

The Mars Room

“Rachel Kushner writes some seriously smart and gorgeous prose, so when she headed to prison in The Mars Room, I went. It is dark. It is painful. At times, the level of detail in the book and its fabulously invented and drawn characters make it feel like a documentary. We are struggling with so many social justice issues across the country right now it is overwhelming, and I worried that The Mars Room would push me over the edge. Instead, I couldn't stop reading. What really happened? Who is to blame? How will things turn out? How can we make things better? Ultimately, Kushner's great success is profoundly illustrating a very simple message: It's complicated.”

The Recovering

Intoxication and Its Aftermath
By Leslie Jamison
Narrated by Leslie Jamison /  16 hours 6 minutes

The Recovering

“I've loved everything Leslie Jamison's written, but best of all so far is The Recovering, a memoir/history/criticism-hybrid that takes addiction and recovery as its subject. Every time I sat down with this book, I felt like I was in the company of my smartest friend, someone who knew all the right words for life's greatest pleasures and pains. Her book moves fluidly from personal remembrances to perfectly synthesized research into how and why people (herself and artists and others) elect to warp their consciousness with substances. The Recovering is a thorough and thoughtful look at many of our worst and some of our best tendencies, and Jamison's continually compelling style makes it a delight to read.”

Hunger

A Memoir of (My) Body
By Roxane Gay
Narrated by Roxane Gay /  5 hours 57 minutes

Hunger

“Man oh man. Roxane Gay never fails to disappoint, even if she might disagree. This is a powerful, raw memoir, narrated by the author. Her truth is so relatable, and even when it’s not, Gay’s writing is empathetic. This audiobook was so engrossing, I actively looked for excuses to step away from what I was doing and listen to it. I highly recommend listening to or reading this book—for EVERYONE. This will challenge how you look at fat people, and women especially, and if you’re like me, how you look at yourself. Do yourself a favor and read this book.”

The Fact of a Body

A Murder and a Memoir
By Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
Narrated by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich /  10 hours 37 minutes

The Fact of a Body

“Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich didn't set out to investigate murder of six-year-old Jeremy Guillory in Louisiana; it was the case she happened upon as a young law school intern in 1992. In a fascinating twist, this becomes not only the true story of a heinous crime for which the perpetrator is in prison, but also of the investigation that unlocks the author's memories of her own youth, a childhood in which she and her sisters were repeatedly sexually abused by their maternal grandfather. As Marzano-Lesnevich moves backward and forward in time between the young man who killed Jeremy and her own life, the reader is swept along on a current of dismay and awe: dismay that human beings can do these things to each other, and awe that the author could face such demons and move on. I've never read another book like this.”

We're Going to Need More Wine

Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True
By Gabrielle Union
Narrated by Gabrielle Union /  7 hours 48 minutes

We're Going to Need More Wine

“I know what this book looks like, and it's true that it's a '90s celebrity's memoir. But the other parts of this book are so remarkable that to limit its description to that would be an injustice. Gabrielle Union is an honest writer and cultural critic. I'm ashamed I didn't know this until now. Her reflections on race, gender, and authenticity in an industry that values anything but are refreshing and ring true. These are the portions of the book that really sparkle on the page. Writer to reader, friend to friend, Union simply shares some of her stories, and I was glad to be a part.”
