I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    Story

    Mattilda's rant got the whole community talking—personal, strong, and compelling, about how gay life is not all white parties in Miami.

    Here are thirty short stories and essays that play with race concepts and body issues in the gay men's community. Whether it’s being gay and disabled—or growing up gay, South Asian, and living in Ohio—the attitude is indignant, confidential, painful, nostalgic, funny, and activist.

    Gay culture has become a nightmare of consumerism, whether it's an endless quest for Absolut vodka, Diesel jeans, rainbow Hummers, pec implants, or Pottery Barn. Whatever happened to sexual flamboyance and gender liberation, an end to marriage, the military, and the nuclear family? As backrooms are shut down to make way for wedding vows, and gay sexual culture morphs into “straight-acting dudes hangin’ out”, what are the possibilities for a defiant faggotry that challenges the assimilationist norms of a corporate-cozy lifestyle?

    Story

    One of the most honest, non-judgmental books about women and drinking I’ve ever come across. Women’s relationships with alcohol are many faceted, and this book hits all the angles.

    Some, like the opening story by Pam Houston of several of her parents’s drunken car-crashes over the years of her childhood, are horrifying. Others explore the joys of drunken bonding with friends. Asra Nomani writes of attitudes hypocrisies in the American Muslim community.

    Superlative writing from fine authors who aren’t afraid of examining their lives and relationships with alcohol.

    Whether you drink it or not, alcohol is likely a potent part of your life: our culture is saturated in it. Ask any woman you know to tell you a drinking story, and she'll come up with one in fact, she may even come up with five. With friends and with coworkers, at date night and at ladies' night, and on special occasions ranging from Valentine's Day to the Super Bowl, we encounter alcohol yet when it comes to discussing the nature of our relationship with drinking, few of us do so honestly and openly.

    This book has made a huge impression everywhere it's been discussed-- and there's not a book critic in America who hasn't weighed in. The title sounds titillating, but these real-life stories are frank, earnest, and real.

    Nura Maznavi and Ayesha Mattu made fantastic selections, there's not one repitition or predictable exposition.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Piper Kerman and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    I'd listen to Cassandra, but I think I'd rather not try another book by Piper


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Well, its a biography so unless it was fiction you can't really change the fact that prison is prison


    Did Cassandra Campbell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, voice inflection and characterizations


    Did Orange Is the New Black inspire you to do anything?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are expecting some action like in the series on Netflix you will be sorely disappointed. I don't really care for this book because it fizzled out in the end. There just wasn't much to talk about once Piper was off to testify and it should have ended before that or after she got home. I'd like to know how she adjusted to life on the outside, but we don't get any of that and I don't think I'd read a whole book about it...so that leaves me at an fork in the road. I think that Piper writes well, but her over effusive love of family and Larry got a little bit silly. She does understand that she is a privileged white chick and that is admirable.

Call the Midwife: Farewell to the East End is the last book in Worth's memoir trilogy, which the Times Literary Supplement described as "powerful stories with sweet charm and controlled outrage" in the face of dire circumstances.

    Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated.

Which of the assumptions behind the civil rights revolution have stood the test of time, and which have proven to be mistaken or even catastrophic to those who were supposed to be helped?

Why is Anne so compelling? Why has she inspired such extreme reactions? What did she really look like? Was she the flaxen-haired martyr of Romantic paintings or the raven-haired seductress of twenty-first-century portrayals? (Answer: Neither.) And perhaps the most provocative questions concern Anne’s death more than her life.

    The question of exactly what sex differences exist and whether they have a biological foundation has been one of our culture's favorite enduring discussions. It should. After a baby is born, a parent's first concern is for its physical health. The next concern is its sex. Only in the most modern societies does sex not virtually guarantee the type of future life a new human being will have. Even in modern societies, one's sex usually plays a large role in the path a life follows.

    Ancient Greeks and Romans had a term for the Double, referring to such an entity as a personal daemon or protector, a heavenly twin, who acts as an invisible guide during the lifetime of an individual. Recent Jungian psychologists refer to ''the double'' as ''a soul figure with all the erotic and spiritual significance'' attached to those inner figures whom Jung called anima (the inner feminine side of men) and animus (the inner masculine side of women). The double archetype, however, is not of the opposite, but of the same gender.
