  • Always Happy Hour

    By Mary Miller

    Read by Madeleine Lambert

    Stories

    This collection of ill-fated love stories combines hard-edged prose and savage Southern charm.

    "Stellar...Miller's collection feels so true because it never glosses over the desperate or unflattering portrayals of its narrators, but neither does it exploit their faults. These stories acutely explore boyfriends, exes, poor choices, and the sad fallout of so many doomed relationships." - Publishers Weekly, Starred and Boxed Review

  • In Sunlight Or In Shadow

    By Lawrence Block

    Read by Ensemble Cast

    Stories Inspired by the Paintings of Edward Hopper

    A brand new anthology of 17 superbly-crafted stories, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper.

    "Block invited fellow mystery writers and other literary luminaries to pick a Hopper painting and write a story inspired by it. The 17 results are searing and ensnaring, clever, erotic, and disquieting tales of anger and subterfuge, desperation and revenge. A lushly illustrated, darkly alluring, deliciously unnerving union of art and story." - Booklist, Starred Review

    A Novel in Five Parts

    From the acclaimed, bestselling author of Birdsong, comes a novel about five unforgettable lives.

    Earphones Award Winner. "Samuel West's melancholic, refined air and emotional register reflect Geoffrey's experiences as a British schoolteacher turned concentration camp escapee. Christian Rodska's lower-class British accent and animated pacing telegraph Billy's rise from workhouse poverty to literate family man in Victorian England. Lucy Briers plays storyteller for Elena's journey from farm girl to famous scientist in a futuristic Europe. Sian Thomas's soft voice and spot-on French accent are perfect for Jeanne's transformation from Catholic orphan to maid for a mid-nineteenth-century bourgeois family. Rupert Degas seamlessly switches from male to female, British to American in the final story of American hippie Anya's musical career." - AudioFile Magazine
