Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Carey Mulligan

Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

English actress Carey Mulligan narrates this wondrous audiobook about a woman’s existential journey between life and death. At age 35, Nora Seed attempts suicide. Instead of dying, Nora arrives at a metaphysical library that represents all her possible existences had she made different choices. Each book transports Nora to another life, which she experiences firsthand until she feels unfulfilled. She then returns to the library to try again. While the story structure is episodic, Mulligan maintains strong narrative cohesion with her vibrant and humane portrayals of Nora and of the recurring characters who appear in her various lives. Mulligan’s incredible talent shines throughout as she leads listeners through a grand adventure and a deeply personal exploration of what it means to have a good life. A.T.N.
