We're Going to Need More Wine

Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True

By Gabrielle Union
Narrated by: Gabrielle Union
Length: 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.”

Shrill

Notes from a Loud Woman

By Lindy West
Narrated by: Lindy West
Length: 6 hours 9 minutes

Shrill is an uproarious memoir, a feminist rallying cry in a world that thinks gender politics are tedious and that women, especially feminists, can't be funny.

Coming of age in a culture that demands women be as small, quiet, and compliant as possible -- like a porcelain dove that will also have sex with you -- writer and humoristLindy West... Read more »

The Lady from the Black Lagoon

Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick

By Mallory O'Meara
Narrated by: Mallory O''Meara & Mallory O'Meara
Length: 9 hours 19 minutes

The Lady from the Black Lagoon

“One part biography and one part autobiography Mallory O'Meara tells the story of Milicent Patrick a beautiful and talented artist and actress in 1950's Hollywood. It is the story of Milicent's successful creation of the creature from the Black Lagoon and how the male dominated Hollywood industry buried her contribution to one of the most well known movies of all time. O'Meara also shares the story of her professional life and how, despite the sixty years that separate them, it parallels Milicent's life. O'Meara illustrates with her unique perspective how far we have come, not very far, and how far we have yet to go. This book is empowering and validating.”

The Witches Are Coming

By Lindy West
Narrated by: Lindy West
Length: 6 hours 27 minutes

The Witches Are Coming

“Lindy West is hilarious and timely in this must-listen audio book! It is more enjoyable because Lindy reads it herself, so the jokes are perfectly timed and hearing her words in her own voice works very well for this book. Round up all your fellow witches and gather your coven, the witches are coming for the patriarchy!”

Catch and Kill

Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators

By Ronan Farrow
Narrated by: Ronan Farrow
Length: 10 hours 43 minutes

Catch and Kill

“A timely, incredibly important account of the difficulties Farrow faced at NBC while working on the Weinstein expose, which he took to the New Yorker and subsequently won a Pulitzer for. The audiobook is grippingly read by Farrow (though the accents he attempts are... let's go with 'confusing'). It's upsetting, sure, but heartening to see the exhaustive research and the very clearly laid-out account of how Farrow had to work against the very powerful high-profile members of the media establishment--including his own bosses--not only because of Weinstein's well-oiled intimidation machine but also as part of those figures attempting to cover up their own histories of being harassers. Highly recommend this important piece of current events journalism, which reads like a thriller novel.”

Underland

A Deep Time Journey

By Robert Macfarlane
Narrated by: Matthew Waterson
Length: 12 hours 3 minutes

Underland

“I don’t think there is a square mile of ground on this planet where Robert Macfarlane couldn’t dig up a new, wondrous story. Underland continues the tradition of profound storytelling, reflection, and, quite simply, gorgeous writing we have come to expect from him. Macfarlane’s ventures into the underworlds of our planet, both mythical and literal, may amount to his finest work yet, and not just because these are the places that have captivated me most throughout my life. I feel fortunate to be living at the same time as him, knowing that as long as he is writing, there is something to look forward to.”
