A New York Times bestseller. Academy AwardÂ®-winning actor Cate Blanchett joins author Lauren Hough in narrating the audiobook edition of Houghâ€™s Leaving Isnâ€™t the Hardest Thing. At once razor-sharp, profoundly brave, and often very, very funny, the essays in Leaving Isnâ€™t the Hardest Thing interrogate our notions of what it means to live freely. Each piece is a reckoning: of survival, identity, and how to reclaim oneâ€™s past when carving out a future.

Narrated by acclaimed British actress Anne-Marie Duff, The Absolute Book is an epic, action-packed fantasy in which hidden treasures are recovered, wicked things resurface, birds can talk, and dead sisters are a living force. It is a book of journeys and returns, from contemporary England to Auckland, New Zealand; from a magical fairyland to Purgatory. Above all, it is a declaration of love for stories and the ways in which they shape our worlds and create gods out of mortals.
This debut collection of satirical stories from New Yorker contributor and former Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Jen Spyra is narrated by Downton Abbeyâ€™s Dan Stevens, Stephen Colbert, and other notable voices.
