Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jane Lynch, Carrie Brownstein, Roberta Colindrez, Roxane Gay, and a Full Cast

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2023

This full-cast audio adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s classic comic strip about the messy lives of a group of queer women in the 1980s is absolutely flawless. Jane Lynch grounds the production as the narrator; her witty and dramatic performance sets the tone for each episode. Carrie Brownstein gives a knockout performance as Mo, a self-righteous but well-intentioned lesbian who is prone to anxiety attacks. Roberta Colindrez’s smooth, deep voice; easy confidence; and quick laugh perfectly capture Mo’s best friend, Lois. And whoever cast Roxane Gay as the owner of the queer bookstore where Mo and Lois work deserves a medal. Music and sound effects, including protest chants and speeches, add vibrancy. A hilarious, heartfelt, and utterly compelling adaptation of a lesbian classic. L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2023 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
