Robin Miles gives voice to everything New York in this fantastical celebration of the city’s spirit. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the latest audiobook from renowned author N.K. Jemisin and Golden Voice narrator Robin Miles. New York City is going through a transformation—it’s becoming sentient, embodied by six human avatars who represent the city’s five boroughs plus New York as a whole. Those avatars must find each other to reject a viral alien threat. Miles creates distinct voices and accents for the diverse cast of characters and goes all-in with her energizing performance, making listening a joy. An ideal audiobook companion in a time of uncertainty.
