A Rope from the Sky: The Making and Unmaking of the World's Newest State

A Rope from the Sky: The Making and Unmaking of the World's Newest State

Author: Zach Vertin Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/01/2019

The birth of South Sudan was celebrated the world round?a triumph for global justice and the end of one of the world’s most devastating wars. The Republic’s historic independence was acclaimed not only by its long-oppressed people but also by three U.S. presidents and the legions of Americans who championed their cause. But the celebration would not last: South Sudan’s freedom-fighters soon plunged their new nation back into chaos, shattering the promise of liberation and exposing the hubris of their American backers. Drawing on extraordinary personal stories of identity, liberation, and survival, this narrative tells an epic story of paradise won and then lost. Zach Vertin’s firsthand accounts from deadly war zones to the halls of Washington power bring listeners on an extraordinary journey into the rise and fall of the world’s newest state. South Sudan’s untold story is a unique episode in global history?an unprecedented experiment in international state-building?and a cautionary tale. A Rope from the Sky is propelled by characters both inspired and ordinary—their aspirations are matched by insecurities, their sins by courage and kindness. It is first a story of hope, power, greed, compassion, and conscience-shocking violence from the world’s most neglected patch of territory. But it is also a story about the best and worst of America: both our big-hearted ideals and our difficult reckoning with the limits of American power amid a world in disarray.

A Spot of Trouble

A Spot of Trouble

Author: Teri Wilson Narrator: Angie Hickman, Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/09/2021

Violet March and Sam Nash are as different as night and day and have been enemies ever since Violet accused Sam of dognapping her beloved Dalmatian. Sam knows that's impossible-for one thing, Cinder is a well-trained fire-safety-demonstration dog who never steps out of line for serious firefighter Sam. Sprinkles, on the other hand, has never met a command that she didn't ignore completely, much like her bubbly owner. So when Sprinkles and Cinder accidentally switch places during one of the annual police vs. fire department softball tournament games, Violet is thrilled by her dog's sudden perfect behavior. And if stubborn-yet-charming Sam is embarrassed that his dog no longer listens, all the better. But when the dogs are eventually switched back, both Sam and Violet are surprised to find that not everything is as black and white as it seems. And a little puppy love might be just the thing they've been missing...

After the Sun

After the Sun

Author: Jonas Eika Narrator: Anthony Lee Medina, Chris Andrew Ciulla, Imogen Church, Michael Crouch Release Date: 01/08/2021

"Relentlessly thrilling . . . an orgy of the unpredictable." -New York Times Book Review "Like Thomas Pynchon taking on late capitalism. . . . surrealistic, granular in its details, and concerned with social entropy and desperate attempts at communion." -Wall Street Journal From a major new international voice, mesmerizing, inventive fiction that probes the tender places where human longings push through the cracks of a breaking world. Under Cancún's hard blue sky, a beach boy provides a canvas for tourists' desires, seeing deep into the world's underbelly. An enigmatic encounter in Copenhagen takes an IT consultant down a rabbit hole of speculation that proves more seductive than sex. The collapse of a love triangle in London leads to a dangerous, hypnotic addiction. In the Nevada desert, a grieving man tries to merge with an unearthly machine. After the Sun opens portals to our newest realities, haunting the margins of a globalized world that's both saturated with yearning and brutally transactional. Infused with an irrepressible urgency, Eika's fiction seems to have conjured these far-flung characters and their encounters in a single breath. Juxtaposing startling beauty with grotesquery, balancing the hyperrealistic with the fantastical-"as though the worlds he describes are being viewed through an ultraviolet filter," in one Danish reviewer's words-he has invented new modes of storytelling for an era when the old ones no longer suffice.

Al Capone and the 1933 World's Fair: The End of the Gangster Era in Chicago

Al Capone and the 1933 World's Fair: The End of the Gangster Era in Chicago

Author: William Elliott Hazelgrove Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/10/2017

Al Capone and the 1933 World's Fair is a historical look at Chicago during the darkest days of the Great Depression-the story of Chicago fighting the hold that organized crime had on the city to be able to put on the 1933 World's Fair. William Elliott Hazelgrove provides the exciting and sprawling history behind the 1933 World's Fair, the last of the golden age. He reveals the story of the six millionaire businessmen, dubbed The Secret Six, who beat Al Capone at his own game, ending the gangster era as prohibition was repealed. The story of an intriguing woman, Sally Rand, who embodied the World's Fair with her own rags to riches story and brought sex into the open. The story of Rufus and Charles Dawes, who gave the fair a theme and then found financing in the worst economic times the country had ever experienced. The story of the most corrupt mayor of Chicago, William Thompson, who owed his election to Al Capone; and the mayor who followed him, Anton Cermak, who was murdered months before the fair was opened by an assassin many said was hired by Al Capone. But most of all, it's a story about a city fighting for survival in the darkest of times; and a shining light of hope called A Century of Progress.

All My Colors

All My Colors

Author: David Quantick Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/04/2019

From Emmy Award-winning author David Quantick, All My Colors is a darkly comic novel about a man who remembers a book that may not exist, with dire consequences. A bizarre, mind-bending story at the intersection of Richard Bachman, Charlie Kaufman, and Franz Kafka. It is March 1979 in DeKalb Illinois. Todd Milstead is a wannabe writer, a serial adulterer, and a jerk, only tolerated by his friends because he throws the best parties with the best booze. During one particular party, Todd is showing off his perfect recall, quoting poetry and literature word for word plucked from his eidetic memory. When he begins quoting from a book no one else seems to know, a novel called All My Colors, Todd is incredulous. He can quote it from cover to cover and yet it doesn't seem to exist. With a looming divorce and mounting financial worries, Todd finally tries to write a novel, with the vague idea of making money from his talent. The only problem is he can't write. But the book-All My Colors-is there in his head. Todd makes a decision: he will 'write' this book that nobody but him can remember. After all, if nobody's heard of it, how can he get into trouble? As the dire consequences of his actions come home to both Todd and his long-suffering friends, it becomes clear that there is a high-and painful-price to pay for his crime.

Beauty: A Novel

Beauty: A Novel

Author: Frederick G. Dillen Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/03/2014

This “absorbing and memorable novel” (Tom Perrotta) set in the world of corporate intrigue is about a woman who must choose between her dream job and everything else—her savings, her reputation, and an unexpected chance at love. As a corporate “undertaker” for a mergers and acquisitions firm in New York, Carol MacLean travels from factory to factory, firing blue-collar workers who remind her of her father and the kids she grew up with. The payoff is huge: if Carol works hard enough, her boss has promised to make her CEO of one of the firm’s holdings. Just when it seems like her dream might come true, on a trip that takes her away from New York to a desperate fishing town in coastal Massachusetts, Carol gets a call from the office: “You’re fired.” Those words shake Carol to her core. But with the help of the townspeople and a charming local fisherman, she begins to understand the power of life’s second acts. She becomes determined to save the factory she almost shut down. As Carol throws herself into transforming the company, she must choose between the job she has always wanted … and everything else. From award-winning author Frederick G. Dillen, Beauty reminds us that sometimes in the pursuit of what we think we want, we lose sight of what matters most. “Intriguing…A feel-good story with a dash of romance.”—Publishers Weekly

Not used to playing by the rules, he finds himself frozen out by his superiors.

Census

Census

Author: Jesse Ball Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: 01/03/2018

A powerful and moving new novel from an award-winning, acclaimed author: in the wake of a devastating revelation, a father and son journey north across a tapestry of towns. When a widower receives notice from a doctor that he doesn't have long left to live, he is struck by the question of who will care for his adult son...a son whom he fiercely loves, a boy with Down syndrome. With no recourse in mind, and with a desire to see the country on one last trip, the man signs up as a census taker for a mysterious governmental bureau and leaves town with his son. Traveling into the country, through towns named only by ascending letters of the alphabet, the man and his son encounter a wide range of human experience. While some townspeople welcome them into their homes, others who bear the physical brand of past censuses on their ribs are wary of their presence. When they press toward the edges of civilization, the landscape grows wilder, and the towns grow farther apart and more blighted by industrial decay. As they approach Z, the man must confront a series of questions: What is the purpose of the census? Is he complicit in its mission? And just how will he learn to say good-bye to his son? Mysterious and evocative, Census is a novel about free will, grief, the power of memory, and the ferocity of parental love, from one of our most captivating young writers.
