Author: Amy Bloom
Read By: Amy Bloom

In Love is an illuminating memoir of two people whose love leads them to find a courageous way to part—and of a woman’s struggle to go forward in the face of loss.

Author: Daniel Genis
Read By: Daniel Genis

Written with empathy and wit, Sentence is a strikingly powerful memoir of the brutalities of prison and how one man survived them, leaving its walls with this book inside him, “one made of pain and fear and laughter and lots of other books.”

In her stunning debut, the creator of Black Liturgies weaves stories from three generations of her family alongside contemplative reflections. At once a compelling spiritual meditation and a tender coming-of-age narrative, This Here Flesh speaks potently to anyone who suspects that our stories might have something to say to us.
