  • Magnificence

    By Lydia Millet

    Read by Xe Sands

    Funny and heartbreaking, Magnificence is an astonishing story from the praised author, Lydia Millet.

    "Magnificence, the final book of a trilogy, is more fable than realism, and promises a kind of moral or eerie warning at the end. It is also more of a long short story than a novel, as all of these subplots are funneled into the service of a single, graceful, short-story-like epiphany." - The Globe and Mail
