Fiction • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Award-winning narrators Robin Miles and Dennis Boutsikaris lead a group of first-rate voice talents in delivering this collection of 29 specially commissioned short stories centered on the COVID-19 pandemic. In the spring of 2020, the NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE rounded up a veritable who's who of contemporary North American authors, including Margaret Atwood, Victor LaValle, and Dina Nayeri, and pulled together an astonishing array of fresh, personal, and immediate takes on a world taken hostage by the virus. The genres range from ghost story to science fiction to magic realism, and in each the narrators keep the tone intimate and conversational. One hopes this is just the beginning of a fresh, breathlessly affecting, and essential literary conversation. B.P.
