Susan Mallery’s story of the months leading up to Maggie’s wedding seems light and comedic at first, but as the wedding draws near, Courtney, Sienna, and Rachel face crises that have festered since their father’s death. Narrator Tanya Eby keys into a genuine reservoir of feeling that will have listeners thinking about their own family dynamic with new  candor. Humorous dialogue and personal reflections meld into a heartfelt, out of the ordinary story.

Self: The Mind Club

How do we, as individuals and in groups, communicate thoughts and feelings? How do we arouse empathy from others? Narrator David Marantz went Behind The Mic with AudioFile to tell us about his experience narrating THE MIND CLUB. And, we’re surprised and delighted to hear about the humor of this audiobook. David even includes his own “outtake” when he laughed so hard he had to stop recording.

“It’s not just dry philosophy—it’s philosophy filled with humanity and philosophy filled with humor.”—Narrator David Marantz
