On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

A Novel

By Ocean Vuong
Narrated by: Ocean Vuong
Length: 7 hours 18 minutes

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

“Written as a letter from son to mother, Ocean Vuong's On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous is desolately beautiful. Each carefully crafted sentence builds upon the last, a momentum that carries you through a hundred pages before you remember to take a breath. Bleak, brilliant, it is the book other books will be compared to for years. Honestly, I would have been fine if it had been the last book I ever read.”

Beasts of a Little Land

A Novel

By Juhea Kim
Narrated by: Sue Jean Kim & Raymond Lee
Length: 13 hours 29 minutes

Beasts of a Little Land

“Juhea Kim's debut novel is at once massive in breadth and intimate in scale. Upending Dickens and Tolstoy by setting some of their themes in Japanese occupied Korea, Kim delves into the depths of her characters - social outcasts all - and builds an ensemble of unique voices that speak to today's world nearly a century on from her setting. Parallels are exposed between the imperialism and revolution of early-twentieth-century Korea and early-twenty-first-century America, Britain, Brazil, Venezuela, Myanmar - take your pick - proving that we have not yet learned from history and are still dooming ourselves to repeat the horror of our past. The setting not only allows for a political backdrop that reverberates to modern readers, but also allows Kim to center her characters in a society shift as well; one where mysticism is giving way to harsh reality; where prior social mores are becoming popular entertainment; and where social outcasts can become leaders of industry. This is a thrilling read, and brought to mind the best of Merchant-Ivory films while also exploring the racist and colonizing effects of the aristocracy.”

“A father's gentle nature, a mother's sacrifice, a daughter's trust, and a son's determination are the cornerstones of this grand, multilayered saga. Pachinko follows one family through an ever-changing cultural landscape, from 1910 Korea to 1989 Japan.

It will take hold of you and not let go!”

The Chosen and the Beautiful

By Nghi Vo
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus
Length: 8 hours 52 minutes

The Chosen and the Beautiful

“A retelling of The Great Gatsby from the perspective of Jordan Baker, who in this concept is a Vietnamese adoptee raised in Louisville. In this version of the roaring 20s, alongside the usual speakeasies and flapper dresses, there’s a reality of demons, ghosts, mysteries, devilish bargains, and magic. Hell is quite literally another location from which beings can emigrate, and every culture has its own intriguing brand of magic. Jordan’s is paper cutting, and she can do wondrous, horrifying things with it. ...Refreshingly, instead of a fantasy plot that revolves around a character honing their powers, montage-style, to save the day, Vo focuses on Jordan’s personality instead. Jordan has always kept her heart aloof, entangling herself with men and women of the smart set, but this summer with Daisy, Gatsby, and quiet and observant Nick Carraway, will change her. is thoughtfully constructed, w/ Jordan’s expanded backstory informing and deepening the beats of the original. On a sentence level, the cadence and tone make you feel right at home in a 1920s classic, even when characters drink demon blood as an aperitif or discuss the troubling influence demons are beginning to have over US politics. And though you know exactly where the plot is headed, there are plenty of shocks and surprises for careful readers. Vo clearly loves and understands the original novel so well, and has accomplished not so much a retelling but a worthy companion piece, a fierce and powerful flip side to one of the great American novels.”

Severance

“Candace Chen is a first-generation Chinese millennial immigrant who tries to make a life in New York City by succumbing to the role of the office drone who helps create cheap bibles. But when Shen Fever—a plague that causes its victims to perform a rote task until death—hits, only a few survive, including Candace. She soon finds herself in a cult-like band of other survivors heading to the Midwest while also trying to come to terms with her past and the unknowns of her future. With dark humor, sharp intelligence, and compassion, Ling Ma has written a well-constructed, biting satire of capitalism and a moving glimpse into the roles of memory, place, and identity in a life.”

Interior Chinatown

A Novel

By Charles Yu
Narrated by: Joel de la Fuente
Length: 4 hours 20 minutes

Interior Chinatown

“We all make choices throughout our lives, choosing different paths to follow, different roles to play. But who selects the options we choose from? Interior Chinatown is like a rapier taken to stereotypes that inhabit society's attitudes towards Asian Americans. The main character, Willis Wu, is a minor actor in an ongoing cop drama who wants to be more than a generic Asian male in the background, maybe even someday becoming "Kung Fu Guy". The novel bounces back and forth between the script Wu is inhabiting and an interior monologue . And one of the strengths of this book, for the reader, is how thin the line sometimes feels between these stereotypical roles that Willis is acting, and the ridiculousness of the particular situation. Interior Chinatown is a brilliant novel, one that challenged this reader in the best possible ways”

The toll on individuals is foregrounded here and summons us to be humane to all.”

By Jack Cheng
Narrated by: Kivlighan de Montebello, Brittany Pressley, Graham Halstead, Michael Crouch, Jason Culp, Thérèse Plummer, Susan Bennett, Dan Bittner, Pete Larkin & Courtney Shaw
Length: 6 hours 10 minutes

See You in the Cosmos

“Meet Alex, a space obsessed almost 12 year old who has been recording sounds and conversations on his golden iPod to send into space so aliens can know what it’s like here on earth. He’s done his research, has met a bunch of similarly rocket obsessed friends via an online rocket forum and has determined that the place to send his golden iPod into space is at a rocket festival one state away from his home. Alex has his clothes and tent packed, his AmTrak ticket in hand and his dog, Carl Sagan (named for Alex’s hero), by his side as they set off on an epic road trip adventure to the rocket festival on a quest to communicate with outer space, search for the truth and try to be brave.Sounds like a great family road trip, right? Well, not quite. Because from the beginning of See You in the Cosmos, you notice some things are amiss with Alex’s family and quickly realize that Alex and Carl Sagan are on their own on this adventure. The fact that no one is traveling with or following Alex is a big part of the secrets that Alex uncovers about his family along the way. Each chapter is written as a new sound recording on his iPod. The format is like a play script in that other characters and sounds appear in the storyline. Alex is a delightful narrator of his story and he is full of big questions—not just about space but about his father who died, about his mom and where she goes on her long walks, and about how a kid like him can learn to be brave. He loves space and obviously has a great knowledge of it. He is sweet and kind and has a place in his heart for people—and his dog. There are serious themes in this book but the sound recording format and Alex’s innocence and exuberance keep the heaviness in check. Alex’s story opens up many opportunities for readers to discuss the weighty topics raised in this story. If you are heading out on your own epic family road trip, do check out the audiobook version of See You in the Cosmos on libro.fm as it is out of this world!”

Miracle Creek

Miracle Creek is a courtroom drama with impeccable pacing, an original plot, and stellar writing. It’s also a remarkably empathetic book, exploring the ripple effects of causality and the urgent need to do right by each other in big and small ways, recognizing that even the best of us will fail once in a while. It is a lovely reminder that even when doing the right thing feels like swimming upstream, we never know what harm may be prevented and what good might come from our actions.

Days of Distraction

“There are few things I love more than stepping into the sensibility of a smart, funny, observant narrator. The 24 year Chinese American tech writer at the center of Alexandra Chang's Days of Distraction is one of those creations. We meet her in transition—trying to decide whether she should leave the Bay Area to accompany her longtime boyfriend to parts unknown. Her en passant insights into relationships, racism, workplace and family dynamics are both sharp and generous. ”
