THERE'S ALWAYS THIS YEAR On Basketball and Ascension

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Hanif Abdurraqib

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Hanif Abdurraqib's latest book is a transcendent feat of poetry, memoir, and--well, magic. His narration is as breathless and beautiful as his prose; this book is epic in every sense of the word. It's an ode to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio; a love letter to basketball; a meditation on home and belonging; and an exploration of faith, Blackness, music, and place. He delivers every word as if every word is a matter of life and death. You can hear the love in his voice; you can hear it get stuck in his throat. His narration is like music: rough and loud one moment, low and soft the next. A masterpiece from one of America's most creative, generous, and rigorous living writers. Don't miss it. L.S.
