My Life on the Road

A worthy and, perhaps surprisingly for some, fun listen, offering excellent narration as well as important insights into the feminist movement, told in an engaging, fast-paced style. Highly recommended. ["Poignant, accessible, essential. Activism is a people's movement, and this is a people's memoir": LJ 8/15 starred review of the Random hc.]

Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family

In spite of some excellent anecdotes, the subject matter is occasionally a bit dry, making it hard not to wish that Slaughter had given voice to the entire audiobook. ["The joint themes of working smarter not harder and giving caregiving its due respect will [appeal to] a wide audience": LJ 9/1/15 review of the Random hc.]

How To Be Both

This work is inventive and thought provoking but best of all moving and beautiful as well. ["Smith presents two extraordinary books for the price of one": LJ 11/15/14 starred review of the Pantheon hc.]

The First Bad Man

Recommended to July's fans and those who enjoy quirky fiction. ["This well-written, compelling novel will delight the open-minded reader looking for something new," read the starred review of the Scribner hc, LJ 9/15/14.]

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

Listeners with an interest in home organization and a tolerance for the idea that our possessions are full of feelings and energy are likely to enjoy this book, while more skeptical listeners might be put off by its more whimsical qualities.

Watch Me

Listeners need not have read or listened to the first volume to enjoy this lyrical Hollywood memoir, read to great effect by the author herself. ["This memoir with both substance and flair is a must-read for Huston fans, those who enjoy film, and anyone who wishes to be inspired by a richly textured life well presented," read the starred review of the Scribner hc, LJ 11/15/14.]

Yes Please

It's clear that Poehler and her publisher gave a great deal of thought to how to use the medium to her advantage. She has a point of view and delivers it generously.

Not That Kind of Girl

Dunham might describe herself as wearing 1980s power suits ironically, but her sincerity is palpable here and, ultimately, that's what makes these essays not only a fun read but surprisingly fortifying as well. Well worth hearing in her own voice in this excellent audio version. ["Her essays are a lesson in compassion for oneself and understanding others. She makes her hard-won lessons accessible to all readers," read the review of the Random hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 10/17/14.]

Leaving the Sea

For fans of the author, who will delight in another volume of tales told in his unique voice, and for those who enjoy envelope-pushing literary fiction. ["The two halves offset each other, but the entirety will appeal almost exclusively to the avant-garde," read the review of the Knopf hc, LJ 9/1/13.]
