    Mary Oliver has published fifteen volumes of poetry and five books of prose in the span of four decades, but she rarely performs her poetry in live readings. Now, with the arrival of At Blackwater Pond, Mary Oliver has given her audience what they've longed to hear: the poet's voice reading her own work.

    Mary says: "this poet shouldn't read own work"
    "Poetry of nature"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Stunningly beautiful poetry for any lover of great writing, but it certainly brings a unique depth to the experience that can only come with having spent some time on Earth.

  • Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent

    Our Divided Political Heart will be the must-listen book of the 2012 election campaign. Offering an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere, E. J. Dionne Jr., argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been, or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us Americans.

    Jamie Britton Blanck says: "Good points and lots of good information"
    "Must-read"

    What made the experience of listening to Our Divided Political Heart the most enjoyable?

    A great perspective on American political history


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    A fascinating take on how we got to this disturbingly polarized political landscape


    What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's a great reader, and makes challenging material very accessible


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you agree or disagree with this notion of an imbalance of our historically conflicting tendencies of individualism vs. more community-focused policymaking, books like this need to be read by more people so we can at least begin to have a civilized conversation around our differences instead of the current winner-take-all bloodletting style of politics
