All the Agents and Saints

Author: Stephanie Elizondo Griest

Reader: Frankie Corzo

Format: 11 CDs (Unabridged)

Travel writer Griest weaves seven years of stories into a meditation on the existential impact of international borderlines. Having lost their land through devious treaties, their mother tongues at English-only schools, and their traditional occupations through capitalist ventures, Tejanos and Mohawks alike struggle under the legacy of colonialism. Toxic industries surround their neighborhoods while the U.S. Border Patrol militarizes them. Combating these forces are legions of artists and activists devoted to preserving their indigenous cultures.

Getting Stoned with Savages

Author: J. Maarten Troost

Reader: Simon Vance

Format: 6 CDs (Unabridged)

The last thing he wants is the stress of a job, so Troost hightails it to the South Pacific – and finds other stresses, instead: typhoons, earthquakes, and giant centipedes. To name a few. This travelogue reveals a wry appreciation of the absurd and infectious joy of discovery. "There's nothing like a crisp British accent to match a narrative voice that is detached, wry, and sarcastic... A cross between Bill Bryson and Hunter S. Thompson, Troost is a delightfully unreliable reporter. And Simon Vance delivers each line with charm."—AudioFile
