In the space of a few days, Carrie loses her marriage, her career, and her home - all while working in Lagos, Nigeria. She is blindsided by the losses and realizes the story she painstakingly knit together over the past two decades - the story explaining her life and who she is - has unraveled. With no plan for the future and only her deaf cat, Lucy, for company, Carrie decides to remain in Africa until she figures out what has just happened. What happens next is an awkward, amusing, and ultimately inspiring journey as Carrie slowly lets go of who she thought she was and starts from scratch at middle-age: making unlikely friends, acquiring dump trucks, tumbling into an improbable love affair, and eventually learning to listen to the elusive and sometimes annoying voice helping her discover who she is, find the neglected artist inside, and piece together her unexpected new life. 1.

DAY 5, MONDAY 23 JULY 2001, 5.53 AM The sun is shining through the bars of my window on what must be a glorious summer day. I've been incarcerated in a cell five paces by three for 12 and a half hours, and will not be let out again until midday; 18 and a half hours of solitary confinement. There is a child of 17 in the cell below me who has been charged with shoplifting, his first offence, not even convicted, and he is being locked up for 18 and a half hours, unable to speak to anyone. This is Great Britain in the 21st century, not Turkey, not Nigeria, not Kosovo, but Britain. On Thursday 19 July 2001, after a perjury trial lasting seven weeks, Jeffrey Archer was sentenced to four years in jail. He was to spend the first 22 days and 14 hours in HMP Belmarsh, a double A-Category high-security prison in South London, which houses some of Britain's most violent criminals. This is the author's daily record of the time he spent there. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Sachs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/macm/000290/bk_macm_000290_sample.mp3.

Nominee, 2018 Audie Awards — Audiobook of the Year We were fighting on the wrong side of a war we couldn't win. And that was the good news. The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved. The UN Expeditionary Force hitched a ride on Kristang ships to fight the Ruhar wherever our new allies thought we could be useful. So, I went from fighting with the US Army in Nigeria to fighting in space. It was lies, all of it. We shouldn't even be fighting the Ruhar; they aren't our enemy. Our allies are. I'd better start at the beginning. 1. Language: English. Narrator: R.C. Bray. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/podm/000350/bk_podm_000350_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

After that, Hillary Mantel won Britain's prestigious Man Booker Prize for her book Wolf Hall. She tells Anne Strainchamps that Henry the Eighth needed a "fixer" to make his break from the Church of Rome and his many marriages legal in England. That man was Thomas Cromwell and Hilary Mantel tells his story in her book. Following that, Carlos Ruiz Zafon is the author of The Shadow of the Wind and now, The Angel's Game. He tells Jim Fleming that both books are part of a sort of Chinese box set of four inter-related novels involving the same characters and his native city of Barcelona.

She talks with Steve Paulson about her early days as a writer and her experience as an immigrant from Africa. Her latest book is called The Thing Around Your Neck.
