Stone Arabia tells the story of a brother and sister, Nik and Denise, now in their 40s. The sister is the reluctant caregiver in the family, dealing with an ailing mother and single-parenting her 20-something daughter. The brother is a failed rock musician. Rather than confront his lack of success head-on, Nik creates a highly detailed fictional world where his imaginary band releases records; they're reviewed; there's correspondence with "fans"; fawning press coverage; and more. It's all very ornate, and somewhat charming; if also deranged. He actually makes the music, too, and dutifully sends off hand-crafted editions to his immediate friends and family. But he's winding down his main musical series - a set of CDs started at 20 and he's just issued #1 - and his sister fears the worst....

Was sagt T.C. Boyle zu diesem Titel?

„It’s one of my favorite novels of the recent years. It’s lyrical, beautifully composed and its’ idea at it’s core is fascinating to me. It is about an artist. He archives himself, his own work, he even writes his own reviews. In some sense he is the most succesfull artist ever because he is not just creating his music but a world around it that enjoys it.“

Audible is pleased to present Light in August, by Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner.

An Oprah's Book Club Selection regarded as one of Faulkner's greatest and most accessible novels, Light in August is a timeless and riveting story of determination, tragedy, and hope. In Faulkner's iconic Yoknapatawpha County, race, sex, and religion collide around three memorable characters searching desperately for human connection and their own identities.

Audie Award-winning narrator Will Patton lends his voice to Light in August. Patton has narrated works by Ernest Hemingway, Don DeLillo, Pat Conroy, Denis Johson, Larry McMurtry, and James Lee Burke, and brings to this performance a keen understanding of Faulkner, an authentic feel for the South, and a virtuoso narrator's touch.

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of William Faulkner's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews James Lee Burke about the life and work of William Faulkner – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

Warum hört T.C. Boyle diesen Titel?

„This is my favorite Faulkner novel. It’s deep character portraials. It’s so richt it reminds me of the European Masters like Thomas Mann. The richness of the story and characters just blew me away.“

The Relive Box and Other Stories (Unabridged)

While T. C. Boyle is known as one of our greatest American novelists, he is also an acknowledged master of the short story and is perhaps at his funniest, his most moving, and his most surprising in the short form. In The Relive Box, Boyle's sharp wit and rich imagination combine with a penetrating social consciousness to produce raucous, poignant, and expansive short stories defined by an inimitable voice.

From the collection's title story, featuring a Halcom X1520 Relive Box that allows users to experience anew almost any moment from their past, to "The Five-Pound Burrito", the tale of a man aiming to build the biggest burrito in town, the 12 stories in this collection speak to the humor, the pathos, and the struggle that is part of being human while relishing the whimsy of wordplay and the power of a story well told. In stories that span a variety of styles and genres, Boyle addresses the enduring concerns of the human mind and heart while taking on timely social concerns. The Relive Box is an exuberant, linguistically dazzling effort from a "vibrant sensibility fully engaged with American society" (New York Times).

Was sagt T.C. Boyle über sein eigens Hörbuch?

„At the beginning of every short story there is one line I have to find.“_______

T.C. Boyle über Hörbücher und die Herausforderung, seine eigenen Texte als Sprecher einzulesen:

„Since we’re going to talk about audio tapes, it’s much different in the studio than on stage, more emotional even. Because on stage you perform for an audience which is present, and it’s much more intimate and personal in a studio. Some of the repressed feelings that I may have when I’m writing, they come to me and hit me right in the face in the glare of the studio with the producer sitting on the other side of the soundproof window.“
