    A few years ago, small-time finance journalist Matthew Prior quit his day job to gamble everything on a quixotic notion: a Web site devoted to financial journalism in the form of blank verse. When his big idea - and his wife's eBay resale business - ends with a whimper (and a garage full of unwanted figurines), they borrow and borrow, whistling past the graveyard of their uncertain dreams.

    Melinda says: "Riotously Relevant"
    "A Gripping parable for our time"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Financial Lives of the Poets the most enjoyable?

    This story was so gripping and so relevant for our times that I actually found myself LOOKING for chores to do so I could listen to more (and that is saying something because I HATE housework)! I really cared about the characters, and their choices were unpredictable but believable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In theory, yes, but I would never listen to any audiobook in one sitting (whoever has that sort of uninterrupted time?!)
