By Isabel Wilkerson
Narrated by: Robin Miles

A Long Petal of the Sea

A Novel

By Isabel Allende
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini
Length: 9 hours 46 minutes

A Long Petal of the Sea

“A sweeping historical novel of a man's life, in all his iterations, from Republican revolutionary in Spain, asylum in Chile, military coup and fleeing to Venezuela, and finally returning to his end days in the countryside of Chile. Throughout, Allende explores the ways in which relationships sharpen and define him, especially the great love of his life, one which is unexpected and fierce. Perfect for fans of Erik Larson, Yaa Gyasi, or Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Narrated by Edoardo Ballerini, who deftly shifted tone to match the developing identity of Victor Dalmau.”

Shuggie Bain

By Douglas Stuart
Narrated by: Angus King
Length: 17 hours 30 minutes

Shuggie Bain

“Shuggie Bain is sad, but there’s so much more to it than that. Hugh “Shuggie” Bain is different—he’s gentle and polite and lonely, a poor boy growing up in 1980’s Glasgow. His glamorous mother, Agnes, is an alcoholic, but she embodies her dignity when she needs it most. In one notably humorous scene, she drunkenly collects her son from his good-for-nothing father, upon checking herself out of the psych ward, and breaks the windows of his house while neighborhood boys whoop and holler at her boldness. Shuggie runs to his savior and clings to her with unconditional love. Eventually, he and his mother pledge to be “brand new” upon moving back into the city—she’ll stop drinking and Shuggie will be “normal.” But no matter how many football statistics he memorizes, Shuggie will never be like other boys, and his mother will never stop drinking. Their relationship is beautiful and overflowing with love, deeply humanizing those who struggle with substance abuse. I’ll never forget Shuggie Bain.”

Daisy Jones & The Six

A Novel

By Taylor Jenkins Reid
Narrated by: Jennifer Beals, Benjamin Bratt, Judy Greer & Pablo Schreiber
Length: 9 hours 3 minutes

Daisy Jones & The Six

“Daisy Jones and the Six is a rock n roll biopic with all of the expected drugs, alcohol, fights, groupies and blackouts. Yet, it is SO much more than that. It is full of heart, anguish, and bare knuckled honesty from a group of musicians aching to find their voice, their audience and where they fit in the world. The audio book is AMAZINGLY well done. I loved every second of it.”

Intimations

Six Essays

By Zadie Smith
Narrated by: Zadie Smith
Length: 1 hours 50 minutes

Intimations

“We are all living through this moment in history together, and yet somehow, Zadie Smith has captured it in a way I could never have expected. Stunning, thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, but oddly hopeful, Intimations is necessary reading (or listening, with searing narration by the author)—the sort that had me pulling off the road as catharsis welled in my eyes.”

The Word is Murder

A Novel
A Hawthorne and Horowitz Mystery: Book #1

By Anthony Horowitz
Narrated by: Rory Kinnear
Length: 9 hours 2 minutes

The Word is Murder

“When a healthy 60-year-old woman is found strangled in her London home the very day she had organized and paid for her own funeral, former police detective—now consultant—Daniel Hawthorne convinces author Anthony Horowitz to shadow his investigation to eventually publish this very story. Imagine sitting in a darkened English pub listening to Horowitz bemoaning his involvement as he tells the story of the unlikeable but captivating Hawthorne. Readers will quickly join in playing detective as characters, plot twists, clues, and red herrings escalate while enjoying the old-fashioned feel of Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes in a modern setting. Delicious!”

Mexican Gothic

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Delightfully creepy. Dread builds steadily throughout the book. As a listener, you know that something is wrong but it’s hard to put your finger on it. Like the main character, you will doubt everything: the characters, their motivations and even your own deductive abilities. This book keeps you on your toes, flitting from one theory to the next. Mexican Gothic takes all the best of traditions of gothic house horror and infuses it with something new: the evils of colonialism. Listen carefully and consider keeping the lights on!”
