Not So Stories Audiobook

Not So Stories

Once upon a time, Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories-fantastical yarns of wondrous creatures in faraway places-bewitched children across the world. But times change. Today, Kipling's writing tells us a different tale; of a love of Empire, and the troubling legacy of British colonialism. In Not So Stories, writers of colour from around the world reclaim these stories and remake them into something new. Something different. Something that belongs to us all. Including stories by Adiwijaya Iskandar, Joseph Elliott-Coleman, Raymond Gates, Stewart Hotston, Zina Hutton, Georgina Kamsika, Cassandra Khaw, Paul Krueger, Tauriq Moosa, Jeannette Ng, Ali Nouraei, Wayne Santos, Zedeck Siew and Achala Upendran, with illustrations by Woodrow Phoenix and a foreword by Nikesh Shukla.

Follow Me To Ground Audiobook

Follow Me To Ground

Author: Sue Rainsford Narrator: Adam Sims, Crystal Clarke, Francine Brody, Jamael Westman, Kate Handford Release Date: August 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. 'Weird, tender, haunted. A deeply affecting spectacle, equal parts beauty and horror, and unlike anything you will read this year' TEA OBREHT, author of Orange Prize winner, The Tiger's Wife LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOT PRIZE 2019 'Fierce, palpable, hynoptic. A dazzling, troubling dream' COLIN BARRETT In house in a wood, Ada and her father live peacefully, tending to their garden and the wildlife in it. They are not human though. Ada was made by her father from the Ground, a unique patch of earth with birthing and healing properties. Though perhaps he didn't get her quite right. They spend their days healing the local human folk - named Cures - who visit them, suspiciously, with their ailments. When Ada embarks on a relationship with a local Cure named Samson, and is forced to choose between her old life with her father, and a new one with her human lover. Her decision will uproot the town - and the Ground itself - for ever. A poised and simmering tour-de-force, FOLLOW ME TO GROUND is a sinister vision of desire and freewill, voiced in earthy prose and eviscerating detail by an astoundingly original new writer. LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOT PRIZE 2019 (c) 2019, Sue Rainsford (P) 2019 Penguin Audio
