    I love your list — I’m always looking for great audio books to check out since I travel for my job and always seem to be in my car with the books to keep me company. I actually stumbled on a great review of Wolke’s book yesterday when I was flicking AM talk radio stations in Chicago and came across The Book Report — its a literary talk radio station that focuses a lot on audio books. You might be interested to check out the show’s site since past shows are archived there and can be streamed — I’m doing that now.
