Fiction & Classics BEST AUDIOBOOKS THE CIRCLE Dave Eggers Read by Dion Graham (Random House Audio/ Books on Tape) "Master of the contemporary short story," Alice Munro was just awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature. Dear Life's timeless and intimate subjects will resonate with anyone listening to these perilous journeys of life. On audio, the listener becomes steeped in the meaning and beauty of Munro's stories by virtue of the performers' deliberate pacing. "I love narrating Dave's work," says narrator Dion Graham, who has performed several of Dave Eggers's audiobooks. "Right on time for our hyperconnected world, The Circle is an astute and terrifying thrill-ride look at where we may be heading— if we're not already there. Just a little something to keep you up at night.
