Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eimear McBride

Fiction • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Award-winning author Eimear McBride introspectively delivers her emotionally charged novella about a middle-aged woman who frequents hotels. In a stream of consciousness style, McBride introduces listeners to an unnamed female character who checks in and out of hotels in different places around the world--such as Avignon, Austin, Auckland, Moscow, and Oslo--to run away from a past she only vaguely mentions. To cope, the unnamed character indulges in casual sex with men and smoking. The narrative is complex, but McBride's indulgent tone, modulated voice, and on-point pacing carry it forward and make it appeal to listeners' emotions. This poignant story of love, loss, and self-exploration will linger in listeners' minds. A.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
