Faraway Things Audiobook

Faraway Things

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: William Demeritt Release Date: June 2021

From a bestselling author comes an evocative, classic-feeling adventure tale about a boy and his sword, and how giving away something precious leads to an even more important discovery. Lucian's father called them faraway things, those mysterious objects orphaned upon the windswept shore, their stories long lost in the shroud of ocean fog. Lucian's discovery on the beach this particular day, though, is no ordinary faraway thing. It's a cutlass: strong, shiny, and powerful. As its history comes to light, Lucian faces a choice: cling to the sword he loves or accept a gift that shines farther, wider, and deeper than he could have ever dreamed. Stunningly illustrated with evocative art by Kelly Murphy and written by award-winning and bestselling writer Dave Eggers, here is a profound and resonant tale about the reward of letting go.

El Círculo Audiobook

El Círculo

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Carlos Manuel Vesga Release Date: February 2021

Una novela siniestramente verosímil sobre los peligros de la era digital. El día que Mae Holland es contratada para trabajar en el Círculo, la empresa de internet más influyente del mundo, sabe que se le ha concedido la oportunidad de su vida. A través de un innovador sistema operativo, el Círculo unifica direcciones de email, perfiles de redes sociales, operaciones bancarias y contraseñas de usuarios dando lugar a una única identidad virtual y veraz, en pos de una nueva era de civilidad y transparencia. Mae está entusiasmada con la modernidad y la actividad de la compañía, las espaciosas oficinas de diseño, las cafeterías acristaladas y las acogedoras instalaciones del campus. Cada día se celebran fiestas, conciertos al aire libre y actividades deportivas. Hay clubs de todo tipo, e incluso puede visitarse un exclusivo acuario de peces exóticos de la fosa de las Marianas. Mae se siente afortunada de formar parte del centro del mundo, a pesar de que se aleje cada vez más de su vida fuera del campus y de que su rol dentro del Círculo acabe siendo del dominio público. Lo que empieza como la fascinante historia de ambición e idealismo de una mujer se convierte en una trepidante novela de suspense que plantea cuestiones tan vitales como la memoria, el pasado, la privacidad, la democracia y los límites del conocimiento humano. Reseñas: «Eggers ha puesto su estilo y su pulso narrativo al servicio del tecnothriller: un escritura enérgica y eficaz.» Time «Una parábola sobre los peligros de la era digital. Eggers nos recuerda cómo la utopía digital puede conducir a la 'dataficación' de nuestra vida diaria, cómo la creencia en la sabiduría de la mayoría puede hundirnos en el decreto de las masas, cómo abrazar la idea de comunidad puede llevarnos a la anulación del individuo.» The New York Times «El Círculo es una hábil y moderna síntesisde ingenio swiftiano y pronosticación orwelliana [...], un trabajo tan relacionado con nuestro tiempo que podría ser considerado la observación satírica más acertada del principio de la era de internet.» The Guardian «Fascinante [...]. Eggers consigue que nos suba la adrenalina [...]. Una novela de ideas [...]. Puro entretenimiento, pero del estimulante.» Margaret Atwood, The New York Review of Books «La mayoría nos imaginamos el totalitarismo como algo que se impone, pero ¿y si fuéramos los cómplices en nuestra propia opresión? Este es el escenario de la ambiciosa, aterrorizante y siniestramente verosímil nueva novela de Eggers [...]. Las comparaciones con Un mundo feliz y 1984 serán inevitables.» Booklist «Ambientada, valiente y audazmente, en un futuro no muy lejano, la novela es en parte sátira y en parte thriller corporativo. Pero sobre todo es una historia que nos alerta sobre las amenazas contra la privacidad, la libertad y la democracia.» USA Today

A Hologram for the King 'International Edition'

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: September 2020

In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter's college tuition, and finally do something great. In A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, Dave Eggers takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and his splintering family together in the face of the global economy's gale-force winds. This taut, richly layered, and elegiac novel is a powerful evocation of our contemporary moment- and a moving story of how we got here.

The Captain and the Glory Audiobook

The Captain and the Glory

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: John Hodgman Release Date: January 2020

A hilarious, biting satire of the United States and its unpredictable leader from the best-selling author of The Circle The grand ship Glory has been skilfully captained for years, but when its well-loved old skipper decides to step down, a new leader thrusts himself forward and a new era begins. The new Captain is vulgar, bumbling and inexplicably confident. With no knowledge of nautical navigation or maritime law - nor even, as he has repeatedly remarked, a particular liking for boats - he solemnly swears to shake things up. Together with his band of petty thieves and confidence men known as the Upskirt Boys, the Captain enthralls his passengers: writing his dreams and notions on the cafeteria whiteboard, boasting of his exemplary anatomy, devouring cheeseburgers, and tossing anyone who dissatisfies him overboard. Until one day a famous pirate, long feared by passengers of the Glory but revered by the Captain for how phenomenally masculine he looks without a shirt while riding a horse, appears on the horizon . . . "A funny, macabre, and inspired modern fable about a boat and its captain. If there is any further metaphor involved, though, it is totally lost on me." BJ NOVAK "A shattering, hilarious, spellbinding siren call from the deck of one of our greatest storytellers and prophets" EVE ENSLER "Utterly hysterical. This book gets it exactly right - the tone, the form, the kind of naive narrative that implies that all this is perfectly normal. I laughed out loud so frequently I was amazed, because I'm not that easy to make laugh out loud. Bravo." ERIC IDLE "Completely absurd and true. As funny as it is scarily reflective of our times." TOMMY ORANGE Dave Eggers is the author of twelve books, including The Monk of Mokha; The Circle; Heroes of the Frontier; A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award; and What Is the What, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and winner of France's Prix Médicis Etranger. He is the founder of McSweeney's and the co-founder of 826 Valencia, a youth writing centre that has inspired similar programs around the world, and of ScholarMatch, which connects donors with students to make college accessible. He is the winner of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and is the co-founder of Voice of Witness, a book series that illuminates human rights crises through oral history.

The Parade Audiobook

The Parade

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: March 2019

From the bestselling author of The Monk of Mokha and The Circle comes a taut, suspenseful story of two foreigners' role in a nation's fragile peace. An unnamed country is leaving the darkness of a decade at war, and to commemorate the armistice the government commissions a new road connecting two halves of the state. Two men, foreign contractors from the same company, are sent to finish the highway. While one is flighty and adventurous, wanting to experience the nightlife and people, the other wants only to do the work and go home. But both men must eventually face the absurdities of their positions, and the dire consequences of their presence. With echoes of J. M. Coetzee and Graham Greene, this timeless novel questions whether we can ever understand another nation's war, and what role we have in forging anyone's peace. "The ever-incisive, worldly-wise, compassionate and imaginative Eggers maintains the tension of a cocked crossbow in this magnetising, stealthily wry and increasingly chilling tale of First World corporate mercenaries way out of their element."

The Lifters Audiobook

The Lifters

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: April 2018

Journey to an underground world where adventure awaits and heroes are made in this middle grade novel from the bestselling, Pulitzer-nominated author of The Monk of Mokha and Her Right Foot. When Gran and his family move to Carousel, he has no idea that the town is built atop a secret. Little does he suspect, as he walks his sister to school or casually eats a banana, that mysterious forces lurk mere inches beneath his feet, tearing up the earth like mini-hurricanes and causing the town to slowly but surely sink. When Gran's friend, the difficult-to-impress Catalina Catalan, presses a silver handle into a hillside and opens a doorway to underground, he knows that she is extraordinary and brave, and that he will have no choice but to follow wherever she leads. With luck on their side, and some discarded hockey sticks for good measure, Gran and Catalina might just find a way to lift their town--and the known world--out of danger. In The Lifters, critically acclaimed author Dave Eggers establishes himself as a storyteller who can entertain and inspire readers of any age

This Bridge Will Not Be Gray, Revised Audiobook

This Bridge Will Not Be Gray, Revised

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: April 2018

One of Publishers Weekly's Best Picture Books of 2015. The Golden Gate Bridge is the most famous bridge in the world. It is also, not entirely coincidentally, the world's first bright-orange bridge. But it wasn't supposed to be that way. In this book, fellow bridge-lovers Dave Eggers and Tucker Nichols tell the story of how it happened-how a bridge that some people wanted to be red and white, and some people wanted to be yellow and black, and most people wanted simply to be gray, instead became, thanks to the vision and stick-to-itiveness of a few peculiar architects, one of the most memorable man-made objects ever created. Told with irresistible prose, This Bridge Will Not Be Gray is a joyful history lesson in picture-book form-a gorgeously crafted story that teaches us how beauty and inspiration tend to come from the most unexpected places. Sometimes you have to fight for what you believe in, even if it's just a color.

Her Right Foot Audiobook

Her Right Foot

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: March 2018

If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you'd mention the Statue of Liberty. Have you seen her? She's in New York. She's holding a torch. And she's in mid-stride, moving forward. But why? In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire country's creation.

Author: Dave Eggers Narrator: Dion Graham Release Date: January 2018

From the best-selling author of The Circle and What Is the What, a heart-pounding true story that weaves together the history of coffee, the struggles of everyday Yemenis living through civil war and the courageous journey of a young man--a Muslim and a U.S. citizen--following the most American of dreams.

Reinventing himself, he sets out to learn about coffee cultivation, roasting and importing. He travels to Yemen and visits farms in every corner of the country, collecting samples, eager to improve cultivation methods and help Yemeni farmers bring their coffee back to its former glory. And he is on the verge of success when civil war engulfs Yemen in 2015. The U.S. embassy closes, Saudi bombs begin to rain down on the country and Mokhtar is trapped in Yemen.
