The #1 Bestselling Audiobook of 2017: Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

The #1 Bestselling audiobook across all our partner stores comes as no surprise. With a 166-person cast, including celebrity voices such as Nick Offerman, David Sedaris, Lena Dunham, and many others, Lincoln in the Bardo via audiobook brings this unforgettable story to life.


“Saunders’ first novel has a steep entry curve. It’s not a novel that reveals itself quickly and easily, but if you give it your attention, if you burrow deep into the book, you’ll be eminently rewarded. There is a richness and depth of humanity here. There is the strange and wonderful. There is love and grief and mystery all brought together in the story of Abraham Lincoln’s dead son, the Civil War, and what may happen to us all after we leave the mortal coil. It’s a beautiful and moving book that will stay with you for a long, long while.”

—Jason Vanhee, University Book Store, Seattle, WA
