THE CITY WE BECAME

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robin Miles

Fantasy • 16.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Robin Miles gives voice to everything New York in this fantastical celebration of the city's spirit. As the novel opens, New York City is going through a transformation--it's becoming sentient, embodied by six human avatars who represent the city's five boroughs plus New York as a whole. Along with creating distinct voices and accents for the diverse cast of characters, Miles communicates their full range of emotions, from fear to defiance to NYC pride; select sound effects add even more atmosphere. In the midst of this fragile transition, a hostile entity from another universe is invading the city, manifesting in the guises of alt-right ideology, racism, xenophobia, and gentrification. New York's avatars must find each other and work together to reject the alien threat. Miles goes all-in with her energizing performance, making listening a joy.
