Syndication

Our run of fortuitously themed episodes is OVER, unless you'll take for this episode's theme "really lovely readers." Because they are. Both writers on this episode have the kinds of voices I could just listen to forever. But the similarities mostly end there. Mira Jacob reads the opening of her novel, The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing. Filip Noterdaeme reads from his book, The Autobiography of Daniel J. Isengart. Info on the writers & links to more of their work at CatapultReads.com

This episode brings you two excerpts from two fantastic new books: Jen Doll reading the opening of her book, Save the Date: The Occasional Mortifications of a Serial Wedding Guest (out now) and Catherine Lacey with an excerpt from her novel, Nobody is Ever Missing (out July 8th). On weddings and marriage with audio cameos from a helicopter, an ice cream truck, and who knows what else!

Corrections to the audio: The Last Five Years is about a bad *marriage,* not a bad wedding; Catherine's book comes out July 8th, not July 9th.
