    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    Excellent performance by Paul Michael. I could see each character. It took a real worldwide concern and made it a centerpiece.


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

    I listened to a couple of chapters each time I went for my daily 5 miles walk.

  • Outlaw Marriages: The Hidden Histories of Fifteen Extraordinary Same-Sex Couples

    For more than a century before gay marriage became a hot-button political issue, same-sex unions flourished in America. Pairs of men and pairs of women joined together in committed unions, standing by each other "for richer and for poorer, in sickness and in health" for periods of 30 or 40 - sometimes as many as 50 - years. In short, they loved and supported each other every bit as much as any husband and wife. In Outlaw Marriages, cultural historian Rodger Streitmatter reveals how some of these unions didn’t merely improve the quality of life for the two people involved but also enriched the American culture.

    Mercedes says: "very well documented and interesting"

    What did you love best about Outlaw Marriages?

    Hearing the true life stories of men and women and their partners is so needed in our world.
    It is well crafted and supportive of the GLBT community.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The variety of men and women is very interesting. It shows the diverse nature of the GLBT community and that we've been around a long time.

    Susie Bright, founder of Best American Erotica, presents a classic, taboo-breaking collection of men’s erotic fiction - featuring the most unrepentant gay literary heroes of our generation. Legendary writers like John Preston, Samuel Delany, Steven Saylor/Aaron Travis, Lars Eighner, Dennis Cooper - who can imagine men’s intimate and transgressive lives without them?

    What would have made My Favorite Gay Men's Stories from Best American Erotica better?

    The intimate sexual encounters were to rough for me; enjoy a softer touch.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Narrators were good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Favorite Gay Men's Stories from Best American Erotica?

    I enjoy erotica; however, not the rough and tumble.
