altNarration by the Author or Authors

A Life in Parts
by Bryan Cranston
A poignant, intimate, funny, inspiring memoir—both a coming-of-age story and a meditation on creativity, devotion, and craft—from Bryan Cranston, beloved and acclaimed star of one of history's most successful TV shows, Breaking Bad.

Written and narrated by Bryan Cranston, published by Simon & Schuster Audio


altAudiobook of the Year

Hamilton: The Revolution
by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter
Narrated by Mariska Hargitay with the authors, published by Hachette Audio

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical

Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.

altWhen Breath Becomes Air

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

For readers of Atul Gawande, Andrew Solomon, and Anne Lamott, this inspiring, exquisitely observed memoir finds hope and beauty in the face of insurmountable odds as an idealistic young neurosurgeon attempts to answer the question What makes a life worth living?

• ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST

• NEW YORK TIMES NPR BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE AWARD FINALIST
