Audiobook Recommendations from Book Passage

The Dutch House, Ann Patchett
Ann Patchett, the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, returns with her most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are.

Catch and Kill, Ronan Farrow
In a dramatic account of violence and espionage, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost. Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.

The Water Dancer, Ta-Nehisi Coates
From the National Book Award–winning author of Between the World and Me comes a boldly conjured debut novel about a magical gift, a devastating loss, and an underground war for freedom. This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved.

The Body, Bill Bryson
Bill Bryson, bestselling author of A Short History of Nearly Everything, takes listeners on a head-to-toe tour of the marvel that is the human body. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular.

The Silent Patient, Alex Michaelides
The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller that begins when painter Alicia Berenson shoots her husband in the face five times and then refuses to speak another word. Sent away to a secure forensic unit in North London, she soon encounters criminal psychotherapist Theo Faber who has been waiting to work with her. However, his determination to get her to speak and to unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path that threatens to consume him.

Talking to Strangers, Malcolm Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell reinvents the audiobook in this immersive production of Talking to Strangers, a powerful examination of our interactions with people we don't know. How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.

Chances Are, Richard Russo
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls comes a new revelation: a riveting story about the abiding yet complex power of friendship. One September, three men convene on Martha's Vineard, friends since the '60s despite their differences. But each man holds his own secrets, and none of them has stopped puzzling over the mystery of Memorial Day weekend on the Vineyard in 1971: the disappearance of the woman each of them loved.
