Come to the Edge

A Memoir

By Christina Haag
Narrated by: Christina Haag
Length: 9 hours 36 minutes

Come to the Edge

“Forget what you think you know about celebrity memoir. This is a love story, one of whose protagonists, yes, happens to be one of the most famous men in American story -- but that's almost not important to this memoir. Christina Haag writes movingly of first love, grief, the theatre, and New York City. She reads her own memoir, too, and as an accomplished stage actress she does so beautifully. ”

Dear Mr. You

By Mary -Louise Parker
Narrated by: Mary-Louise Parker
Length: 5 hours 44 minutes

Dear Mr. You

“Quirky, smart, playful, trippy at times - this is exactly how I imagine Mary-Louise Parker to be, and it's how her book is, too. This is a book full of heart and tenderness, heart-breaking at times, witty at others. It was fascinating to get an insight into who Mary-Louise Parker was before she was MARY-LOUISE PARKER, too - incapable of learning to juggle in what might be my favourite chapter, perennially unpopular at school. Hope for us all, maybe?”
