Jo Reed and Michele Cobb Discuss an Evocative Journey of a Waitress Completing Her First Novel
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
AudioFile’s Michele Cobb tells host Jo Reed how this beautiful combination of text and performance makes for a wonderful listening escape. Casey is a young writer who is drowning in college debt and getting by as a waitress as she watches her friends find financial success. Narrator Stacey Glemboski disappears into the characters in this surprisingly funny story, and her warm voice has great narrative appeal as she populates the wealth of interesting characters with believable, imaginative voices.
