SOME BOOKS ARE BETTER HEARD THAN READ

Milkman

Anna Burns

$16.00 $14.72

Characters without names may make you reluctant to listen to this, but it is a powerful story, and the Irish accent will delight you.

Ducks, Newburyport

Lucy Ellmann

$22.95 $20.66

The stream of conscious musing of this woman reflect our culture in ways the ring true at the same time they startled. Hard to stop listening to though you might not make it through all 50 fascinating hours. Take it in small doses.

Actress

Anne Enright

$26.95 $24.26

The fabulous Anne Enright gets better and better. This is a mother-daughter story. Fans of Mommy Dearest will be disappointed but that is not to say this is light on disfunction. Again, the Irish accent of the reader will pull you in.

The Dutch House

Ann Patchett

$27.99 $25.19

Tom Hanks' voice is the perfect compliment to this story of a family told through their house (sort of).

Washington Black

Esi Edugyan

$16.95 $15.59

Get ready to think differently about slavery, friendship, and the shifting nature of life. The narration only makes it better.

Homegoing

Yaa Gyasi

$16.95 $15.59

Two African sisters grow up in different villages, and that makes a stunning difference in their lives and the lives of the generations that follow. The voice and language make this almost like listening too music.
