Publisher's Summary

When Carly Rosen is jilted on the eve of her wedding, she embarks on a startling journey of self-discovery. This gender-bending, risque retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, set in sizzling West Hollywood, echoes the ancient story of the lovers in the Underworld.

What do you do when the love of your life has eloped with another woman on the eve of your wedding? The other woman is a famous beauty named Anna Garibaldi, and their love story is splashed all over the tabloids, making you die inside. To add insult to injury, the one who has abandoned you dies unexpectedly, having left you a cryptic text message suggesting that you were always the one and only. Where do you go from here for solace, for justice?

If you are Carly Rosen, a portrait artist with huge imagination, you use your art to charm your way into the life and inner circle of the alluring Anna Garibaldi, whose seductive and secretive underworld is nothing you could have expected. You say goodbye to life as you know it and take a breathless ride down to the depths of the Land of the Dead, to where passions and dangers await you and nothing is as it seems. Don't forget a coin for the ferryman. Bon Voyage!

    "I can't compare it to any other books"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a unique, strange, unexpected, multilayered story.


    What other book might you compare The Art of Peeling an Orange to and why?

    None.


    What about Christine Williams’s performance did you like?

    She's one of the best narrators I have listened to (and I have listened to many).


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

    Yes. Unfortunately I didn't have time, but I was almost wishing for a long drive, so I could continue listening.

    "Excellent dramatization!"

    The Art of Peeling an orange is a beautifully written literary fiction novel. Having Chris Williams narrate it simply brought the characters to life. I have been a fan of her narration since I heard Chris narrate Jericho. Highly recommended audiobook and novel.
