ALL THE WAYS TO SAY I LOVE YOU

ALL THE WAYS TO SAY I LOVE YOU

Earphones Award Winner

by Neil LaBute | Read by Judith Light

Audible, Inc. | Audio Program
Poetry & Drama

Television actor Judith Light ("Who's the Boss?") dives headlong into this one-woman stage performance recounting a middle-aged school teacher's "rescue" of a young man in her class years earlier. It's a tale of infatuation, deceit, and regret. Coming at the listener like a freight train, Light's character is as tough on herself as she is on the audience, which is left to judge... Read More

She also talks to herself; for example, when she rambles,... Read More

by Sarah Kay | Read by Sarah Kay

Hachette Audio | Unabridged
Poetry & Drama

Sarah Kay provides a treat with this audio offering. The poet herself narrates, and she even presents some of the poems to a live audience. Kay creates spoken-word poetry, meant to be heard. Listen for the stutter of the new reader in "Mrs. Ribeiro." Whatever is missed from not seeing words on a page, Kay makes up with the lyricism of her voice. She is exuberant and optimistic...

TROPIC OF SQUALOR

TROPIC OF SQUALOR Poems

by Mary Karr | Read by Mary Karr

Harper Audio | Unabridged
Poetry & Drama

Mary Karr's steady narration of her poems is marked by the full-bodied enunciations of carefully crafted consonants and vowels. The works sound as if they are meant to share both the contemplative and the poetically humorous. She offers clarity in her narration, even if one doesn't directly understand the content of each poem. Her work consistently makes religious references... Read More
