When All Is Said

A Novel

By Anne Griffin
Narrated by: Niall Buggy
Length: 8 hours 4 minutes

When All Is Said

“Dark and unflinching yet packed with heart and humanity, When All Is Said is Irish storytelling at its best. Maurice Hannigan sits in a bar on a Saturday night and toasts five people who have been important in his life and who have left him, either through death or distance. The 84-year-old widower spools out his story like tangled fishing line, raising one glass to each of his departed loved ones. It all leads up to a startling yet inevitable end to an unsettling yet satisfying story.”

Milkman

By Anna Burns
Narrated by: Bríd Brennan
Length: 14 hours 11 minutes

Milkman

“Loved this audio of Anna Burns, Milkman. This is a personal telling of the Troubles and life in Northern Ireland, the day to day, the trauma, the danger (where no one is named but all are known). Middle sister, the narrator, is whip smart, wickedly funny and trying desperately to not be "interesting" yet somehow she has become the talk of the neighborhood. Even if you never thought you wanted to time travel to Northern Ireland during the Troubles you really should - Burns makes it a worthy trip.”

The Witch Elm

A Novel

By Tana French
Narrated by: Paul Nugent
Length: 22 hours 6 minutes

The Witch Elm

“Reading Tana French means disappearing into another life for a while. Her stories aren’t meant to be slick or flashy, but deliberate, intricate studies of characters and their motivations. The Witch Elm is no different, as it follows the unraveling of Toby starting the night he surprises two burglars in his apartment. As you learn the secrets and weaknesses of Toby and his family, you begin to realize that while finding out what happened is enjoyable and surprising, finding out the how and the why is even better.”
