Men I've Never Been: A Memoir Audiobook

Men I've Never Been: A Memoir

Author: Michael Sadowski Narrator: Charlie Thurston Release Date: November 2021

Men I've Never Been recounts Michael Sadowski's odyssey as a boy who shuns his own identity-and, ultimately, his sexual orientation-in order to become who he thinks he's supposed to be. Beginning with the memory of a four-year-old sitting in a dingy dive bar, sounding out newspaper headlines while his boasting father collects drinks from onlookers, each chapter highlights a different image of manhood that Sadowski saw at home, at school, or on television-from sports heroes, hunters, and game show hosts to his charismatic but hard-drinking father. As he learns not to talk, laugh, cry, or love, he retreats further behind a stoic mask of silence-outwardly well-functioning but emotionally isolated, sinking under the weight of the past. Through wrenching tragedy and tense, life-threatening challenges, Sadowski learns to find love, purpose, and healthy self-regard. In coming to understand his identity and his place within his family, he meditates on the power of real human connection and comes to grasp the damage of his troubled upbringing and the traumas caused by toxic masculinity. By turns comic and tragic, this nuanced memoir uncovers the false selves we create to get along in the world and the price we pay to maintain them.

Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds Audiobook

Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds

Author: Huma Abedin Narrator: Huma Abedin Release Date: November 2021

In this beautifully written and propulsive memoir, Huma Abedin-Hillary Clinton's famously private top aide and longtime adviser-emerges from the wings of American political history to take command of her own story. The daughter of Indian and Pakistani intellectuals and advocates who split their time between Saudi Arabia, the UK and the United States, Abedin grew up in many worlds. Both/And grapples with family, legacy, identity, faith, marriage and motherhood with wisdom and sophistication. Abedin launched full steam into a college internship in the office of the first lady in 1996, never imagining that her work at the White House would blossom into a career in public service, nor that the career would become an all-consuming way of life. Still in her twenties and thirties, she thrived in rooms with diplomats and sovereigns, entrepreneurs and artists, philanthropists and activists, and witnessed many crucial moments in 21st-century American history-Camp David for urgent efforts at Middle East peace in the waning months of the Clinton administration, Ground Zero in the days after the 9/11 attacks, the inauguration of the first African American president of the United States, the convention floor when America nominated its first female presidential candidate. Abedin's relationship with Clinton has seen both women through extraordinary personal and professional highs, as well as unimaginable lows. Here, for the first time, is a deeply personal account of Hillary Clinton as mentor, confidante and role model. Abedin cuts through caricature, rumour and misinformation to reveal a crystal-clear portrait of Clinton as a brilliant and caring leader a steadfast friend, generous, funny, hardworking and dedicated.  Both/And is a candid and heartbreaking chronicle of Abedin's marriage to Anthony Weiner, what drew her to him, how much she wanted to believe in him, the devastation wrought by his betrayals-and their shared love for their son. It is also a timeless story of a young woman with aspirations and ideals coming into her own in high-pressure jobs, and a testament to the potential for women in leadership to blaze a path forward while supporting those who follow in their footsteps. Both/And describes Abedin's journey through the opportunities and obstacles, the trials and triumphs, of a full and complex life. Abedin's compassion and courage, her resilience and grace, her work ethic and mission are an inspiration to people of all ages. 'This journey has led me through exhilarating milestones and devastating setbacks,' said Abedin. 'I have walked both with great pride and in overwhelming shame. It is a life I am-more than anything-enormously grateful for and a story I look forward to sharing.'

Whore of New York: A Confession Audiobook

Whore of New York: A Confession

Author: Liara Roux Narrator: Liara Roux Release Date: November 2021

Liara Roux is accustomed to being mislabelled and misunderstood. As a child, Liara's inquisitive, instinctive, and rebellious nature was frequently problematised in a world designed around the requirements of their neurotypical, cis, heterosexual male colleagues. Coming of age in an oppressively restrictive home, they shuffled tarot and explored self portraiture to rationalise the injustice of chronic pain, toxic lovers, and the cruel silence of divinity. Critiquing capitalism's mechanisms of exploitation, the conservatism of Western medicine, and the politics surrounding sex work, Whore of New York: A Confession is a candid study of artistic awakening, and both spiritual and sexual growth after abuse, seen through the eyes of a proud outsider.

Hear's the Thing: Lessons on Listening, Life, and Love Audiobook

Hear's the Thing: Lessons on Listening, Life, and Love

Author: Cody Alan Narrator: Cody Alan Release Date: November 2021

Includes an audiobook exclusive interview of Cody Alan with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles! Read by the author. In our noise-filled world, where everyone is so quick to speak, the fine art of listening is often lost. When we slow down and give someone our full attention, we offer them a safe place to be fully heard and accepted. Hear's the Thing is a story about what is possible when someone is brave enough to listen to others… and, ultimately, themselves without judgement. For Cody Alan, one of country music's most famous on-air radio and TV personalities, listening to other people has always been a crucial part of his role. It was by fostering his ability to hear others that he discovered the person he most needed to listen to was himself. Listening ultimately led him on a journey of self-discovery where he found the courage to come out as gay, the openness to question spiritually, and the strength to explore a new definition of parenting and family. In his debut memoir, Hear's the Thing, Cody shares some of the many lessons he's learned along the way, including: - How to actively listen with empathy and without judgment - Why a willingness to "let people in" better equips you to receive from others - How genuine attentiveness can help you build healthier and deeper relationships Cody's story will inspire you to hear that inner voice that is leading you to a deeper connection with yourself and the people around you.

Never Silent: ACT UP and My Life in Activism Audiobook

Never Silent: ACT UP and My Life in Activism

Author: Peter Staley Narrator: Peter Staley Release Date: November 2021

In 1987, somebody shoved a flyer into the hand of Peter Staley: massive AIDS demonstration, it announced. After four years on Wall Street as a closeted gay man, Staley was familiar with the homophobia common on trading floors. He also knew that he was not beyond the reach of HIV, having recently been diagnosed with AIDS-Related Complex. A week after the protest, Staley found his way to a packed meeting of the AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power-ACT UP-in the West Village. It would prove to be the best decision he ever made. ACT UP would change the course of AIDS, pressuring the National Institutes of Health, the FDA, and three administrations to finally respond with research that ultimately saved millions of lives. Staley, a shrewd strategist with nerves of steel, organized some of the group's most spectacular actions, from shutting down trading on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to putting a giant condom over the house of Senator Jesse Helms. Never Silent is the inside story of what brought Staley to ACT UP and the explosive and sometimes painful years to follow-years filled with triumph, humiliation, joy, loss, and persistence.

Edna’s Gift: How My Broken Sister Taught Me to Be Whole

Author: Susan Rudnick Narrator: Kristin James Release Date: November 2021

When they were young, Susan and Edna, children of Holocaust refugee parents, were inseparable; Edna was Susan’s first love and constant companion. But as they grew up and Edna’s physical, and mental challenges altered the ways she could develop, a gulf formed between them. Susan’s life became even more complicated when, just short of her sixteenth birthday, she learned that she’d been born without a uterus and would never menstruate or give birth to children. As she coped with this trauma, Edna continued loving her unconditionally, as she always had. In her adult years Edna lived a life of dignity in a spiritual community, becoming a model for how Susan could live hers. In her forties, Susan realized her dream of motherhood when she adopted a daughter. Throughout, Edna remained a teacher and loving presence in her sister’s life. Encompassing Susan and Edna’s lifelong, complex, intertwining relationship, Edna’s Gift has a powerful message: life may be unpredictable, even traumatic—but if you remain open, strength and wisdom will come to you from surprising and unexpected sources.

La isla de las tribus perdidas Audiobook

La isla de las tribus perdidas

Author: Ignacio Padilla Narrator: Alex Ortega Release Date: November 2021

La historia de la relación entre el mar y los pueblos latinoamericanos se nos presenta aquí como la historia de un misterioso desencuentro. Haciendo pie en el tratamiento que reciben las masas de agua en múltiples textos de las tradiciones literarias del continente, Padilla postula que ese conflicto hunde sus raíces en pasajes como la Conquista y la subsecuente esclavitud de indígenas y africanos. También, desde más atrás, en las fases del poblamiento. Todo lo cual habría llevado a un modo peculiar de estar en la naturaleza. A su vez busca vincular esta 'hidrofobia' con otras características que confluirían en una especie de perfil transversal a los habitantes del continente... Este audiolibro está narrado en español latino - Ignacio Padilla (Ciudad de México 1968 - Querétaro, 2016) fue un escritor de novelas, crónicas, cuentos y ensayos. Incursionó también en la literatura infantil. Ocupó los cargos de Director de la Biblioteca Vasconcelos, miembro de la Academia Mexicana de la Lengua y diplomático. Su obra, multipremiada, abarca títulos como Arte y olvido del terremoto, La catedral de los ahogados y La industria del fin del mundo, además de otros textos que giran alrededor de autores como Paul Bowles y Miguel de Cervantes.

Joaquín Sabina Audiobook

Joaquín Sabina

Author: Maurilio De Miguel Narrator: Esteban Montes Release Date: November 2021

Una biografía sobre los orígenes y el auge del cantante Mi primera vocación, como tú bien sabes, era escribir, nunca cantar. Algo de bueno tuvo el marichalazo que me dio hace cuatro años... Al quitarme las ganas de escribir canciones y marcarme con agorafobia hacia el público, la calle, las miradas y la prensa, al menos me dejó refugiarme en las rimas. Y luego tuve la suerte de que mis libros funcionaron y me contrataron en la revista Interviú para publicar coplas satíricas. Eso me permitió vivir la vida que había soñado siendo adolescente. Joaquín Sabina Sí, Joaquín fue muy generoso conmigo. De alguna manera me prohijó, igual que había hecho con el cantante Pulgarcito, años antes, aunque por aquellas fechas yo me negara por sistema a estrechar más las relaciones, yendo a escribir a su casa, dado que carecía de buena calefacción la mía. Y eso que me extendió varias veces la invitación a instalarme con él, mientras redactaba su biografía.​​ ​​Maurilio de Miguel
