Author: Hua Hsu
Read By: Hua Hsu

From the New Yorker staff writer Hua Hsu comes Stay True is both a coming-of-age story that details both the ordinary and extraordinary and a bracing memoir about growing up, and about moving through the world in search of meaning and belonging in the face of friendship and grief.

Tea Hacic-Vlahovic’s A Cigarette Lit Backwards is a sometimes funny, often brutally honest audiobook about ambition and self-discovery set in the punk-rock scene of the early 2000s and vibrating with the intense ache of bad choices and deep longing.
