  • Naked

    Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the current mania for the memoir on its proverbial ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview, a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable.

    Christine says: "My Favorite Sedaris"
    "Good early Sedaris"
    Overall

    Much like Sedaris's other works, Nake is funny and disturbing. It's not laugh-outloud funny like Me Talk Pretty or even Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim but it's still bound to make you laugh

  • The History of Love

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Nicole Krauss
    • Narrated By George Guidall, Barbara Caruso, Julia Gibson, and others

    Story

    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    KLBrookline says: "Beautiful story, beautifully written."
    "Hooked me on Audible"
    Overall

    This is the book that got me hooked on Audible. I bought it more or less on a whim, having heard the buzz surrounding Krauss's work from friends and in the NYtimes. I purchased it when starting a running routine that involved long-run training and was trying to find an alternative to music, which tends to mess with my pacing. It worked like a dream. Listening to this fascinating story made those two-hour-plus runs even more pleasurable. The readers are fantastic, particulary the voice of Gursky, and thist story will suck you in fast. The one downside of listening rather than reading is that I didn't get to linger over Krauss's beautifully turned phrases the way one might when reading the book. Though I've since found other good audio books, few have compared to this one.
