In Sunlight Or In Shadow

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

By Lawrence Block Read by Ensemble Cast

"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

Hot Milk

Shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize

By Deborah Levy Read by Romola Garai

"Gorgeous . . . What makes the book so good is Ms. Levy’s great imagination, the poetry of her language, her way of finding the wonder in the everyday, of saying a lot with a little, of moving gracefully among pathos, danger and humor and of providing a character as interesting and surprising as Sofia. It’s a pleasure to be inside Sofia’s insightful, questioning mind." - The New York Times

A Man Called Ove

A grumpy yet loveable man finds his world turned on its head when a young family moves in next door.

By Fredrik Backman Read by George Newbern

One of the 2014 Top 10 First Novels. Starred review. "...superbly narrated by actor Newbern... When characters hiss, yell, whisper, shout, or shriek, Newbern mimics the emotions smoothly; he speaks in a lighter register for the young daughters... this audio meets, if not exceeds, the print version." - Booklist (audio review)
