Incisive Short Stories
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.
Excellent narration from a bevy of capable narrators enhances Maggie Shipstead’s incisive collection of 10 short stories, You Have a Friend in 10A. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss the collection that showcases Shipstead’s work and breadth of characters from stories written over the past decade. Alex McKenna’s rendition of an actor breaking away from a cult is especially memorable. Shipstead’s complex, flawed characters aren’t altogether likable, but the author has pulled together a sharp and likable collection indeed.
