People make a mess. Marc Maron was a parent-scarred, angst-filled, drug-dabbling, love-starved comedian who dreamed of a simple life: a wife, a home, a sitcom to call his own. But instead he woke up one day to find himself fired from his radio job, surrounded by feral cats, and emotionally and financially annihilated by a divorce from a woman he thought he loved. He tried to heal his broken heart through whatever means he could find - minor-league hoarding, Viagra addiction, accidental racial profiling, cat fancying, flying airplanes with his mind - but nothing seemed to work. It was only when he was stripped down to nothing that he found his way back. Attempting Normal is Marc Maron’s journey through the wilderness of his own mind, a collection of explosively, painfully, addictively funny stories that add up to a moving tale of hope and hopelessness, of failing, flailing, and finding a way. From standup to television to his outrageously popular podcast, WTF with Marc Maron, Marc has always been a genuine original, a disarmingly honest, intensely smart, brutally open comic who finds wisdom in the strangest places. This is his story of the winding, potholed road from madness and obsession and failure to something like normal, the thrillingly comic journey of a sympathetic f--kup who’s trying really hard to do better without making a bigger mess. Most of us will relate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Maron. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003469/bk_rand_003469_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

What do women really want? To be sensually seduced or pressed up against the wall for a quickie? To be tantalized by a peep show or the chance to join the mile high club? Acclaimed erotica writer and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel knows: They want it all. They want to be worshiped, ordered around, sent blindly into ecstasy, and made hot in front of a mirror. They want strangers bearing ice cubes on a hot day and to be the party favor passed around among guests. They want sex at the office and in the great outdoors and on trains and airplanes. They want sex with the whole United States of America (or, at least, part of it). They want to be wooed, seduced, flirted with, taken. They want to handpick their lovers and make them do their bidding. They want men, women, and sometimes both at the same time. In Dirty Girls, the country´s best erotic writers explore their sexual psyches. With contributions from Carol Queen, Alison Tyler, Sofia Quintero, Shanna Germain, Lillian Ann Slugocki, Tsaurah Litzky, and many others, this collection will set your heart racing as you savor these intimate, shocking, and passionate female fantasies. 1.

This big-hearted, laugh-until-you-can´t-breathe collection of personal essays, stories, and riffs on finding love and intimacy in New York City announces the arrival of a ´´a monstrous new talent´´ (New York magazine) in the vein of David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, and Tina Fey. In this uproariously funny debut collection, award-winning writer and performer Isaac Oliver serves up a comedic cornucopia of sketches, vignettes, lists, and diaries from his life as a young, fanciful, and extremely single gay man in New York City. Whether he´s hooking up with a man who dresses as a dolphin, suffering on airplanes and buses next to people with Food from Home, or hovering around an impenetrable circle of attractive people at a cocktail party, Oliver captures the messy, moving, and absurd moments of urban life as we live it today. Since moving to New York a decade ago, Oliver has pined for countless strangers on the subway, slept with half the people in his Washington Heights neighborhood, and observed the best and worst of humanity from behind the glass of a Times Square theater box office. He also rode the subway during Breastfeeding Awareness Week and lived to tell the tale. Culled from years of heartbreak, hook-ups, and more awkwardness than a virgin at prom and a whore in church (and he should know because he´s been both), Intimacy Idiot chronicles Oliver´s encounters with love, infatuation, resilience, and self-acceptance that echo our universal desire for intimacy of all kinds. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Isaac Oliver.

In 2003, eighty-five years after the armistice, it took Richard Rubin months to find just one living American veteran of World War I. But then, he found another. And another. Eventually, he found dozens, aged 101 to 113, and interviewed them. All are gone now. A decade-long odyssey to recover the story of a forgotten generation and their war led Rubin across the United States and France, through archives, private collections, battlefields, literature, propaganda, and even music. But at the center of it all were the last of the last, the men and women he met: a new immigrant, drafted and sent to France, whose life was saved by a horse; a Connecticut Yankee who volunteered and fought in every major American battle; a Cajun artilleryman nearly killed by a German airplane; an eighteen-year-old Bronx girl ´´drafted” to work for the War Department; a machine gunner from Montana; a marine wounded at Belleau Wood; the sixteen-year-old who became America’s last World War I veteran; and many more. They were the final survivors of the millions who made up the American Expeditionary Forces, nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century. Self-reliant, humble, and stoic, they kept their stories to themselves for a lifetime, then shared them at the last possible moment so that they, and the war they won - the trauma that created our modern world - might at last be remembered. You will never forget them. The Last of the Doughboys is more than simply a war story; it is a moving meditation on character, grace, aging, and memory. 1. Language: English.

Michael Brein´s Travel Tales Monthly Bookazine Issue No. 11 for May 2015 contains among the best travel stories from Michael´s huge collection of about 10,000 travel tales that he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Remember the funny movie with John Candy called Planes, Trains and Automobiles? Well, actually, trains, buses, cars, taxis, VW buses, vans, tuk-tuks, camels, and other miscellaneous transport-related stories are what this issue of Travel Tales Monthly is all about. Not airplanes and ships stories this time, mind you; these are covered elsewhere in the Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series with audiobooks specifically devoted to these particular subjects. In this issue A train, bus, car, ship, airplane, taxi, or other form of travel transport is invariably in the news today. And so it is: there´s hardly a day now that a transportation-related incident or accident of some sort or another is not in the news somewhere. Therefore, we´re a lot more concerned about the modes of transport that form a very significant part of our travel lives, so, naturally, we´re taking a lot closer look at our travel transport these days than we have ever done before. And regarding the psychology of travel, in particular, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens to us on the various forms of transport that we take in our travels and how this all impacts our travel-lives. And so, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, this is exactly what I do. Transportation stories include the full range of the human land, sea, and air travel transport experience, including a variety of forms of travel transportation. 1. Language: English.

Short novels are movie-length narratives that may well be the perfect length for science fiction stories. This audio collection, nearly 16 hours long, presents the best-of-the-best science fiction novellas published in 2016 by current and emerging masters of this vibrant form of storytelling. In ´´Wyatt Earp 2.0´´, by Wil McCarthy, a rough and tumble Martian mining town reconstructs Wyatt Earp to restore order. In ´´The Charge and the Storm´´, by An Owomoyela, an uneasy co-existence between human refugees from a crashed spaceship and the aliens who saved them is threatened by human dissidents. In ´´Lazy Dog Out´´, by Suzanne Palmer, a spaceship pilot becomes embroiled in a sinister conspiracy that threatens a space station´s way of life and everything she holds dear. In ´´The Iron Tactician´´, by Alastair Reynolds, Merlin hunts the galaxy for a superweapon powerful enough to destroy the berserker-like robots called Huskers. ´´Einstein´s Shadow´´, by Allen M. Steele, is an alternate history in which an American detective becomes Albert Einstein´s bodyguard as the physicist flees the Nazis onboard an airplane the size of an ocean liner. In ´´The Vanishing Kind´´, by Lavie Tidhar, set in post-World War II London where Nazi Germany won the war, a lovesick, former German soldier searches for an old flame hoping to rekindle a romance in this cold, stark world. Finally, in ´´The Metal Demimonde´´, by Nick Wolven, amidst a world dominated by automation, a carney passionate about her carnival ride has a fling with a jobless boy who rages against those machines. This unabridged collection was edited by Allan Kaster and read by Tom Dheere, Nancy Linari, and Wil McCarthy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Dheere, Nancy Linari, Wil McCarthy.

With the fiendishly funny Fanny Brice as Snooks and the great straight man Hanley Stafford as Daddy, every scene is as irresistible as the urge to give the girl an answer.

There´s the Freedom of Information Act, and then there´s Ventura´s way. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bull, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate nonpartisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk listeners through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media. Among the cases discussed: The CIA´s top-secret program to control human behavior Operation Northwoods: the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists The discovery of a secret Afghan archive, information that never left the boardroom Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura´s research and commentary sheds new light on what they´re not telling you---and why it matters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George K. Wilson.
