A fascinating memoir
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, written and narrated by Trevor Noah (8 hours 44 minutes)
The host of the Daily Show makes a stellar driving companion in this Audie Award-winner, Noah's memoir about growing up with a white father and black mother in apartheid South Africa, where unions between “native” and “European” people were illegal. He vividly describes his family's struggles, and his own eventual rise to celebrity in the U.S., with frankness and humor (plus some ad-libbed comments you won't find in the written version).
A best-selling novel
Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens, narrated by Cassandra Campbell (12 hours 12 minutes)
One of the biggest breakout bestsellers in recent years tells the story of a young girl, Kya Clark, who grows up mostly alone in the wilds of North Carolina, immersed in and fascinated by nature. She's eventually drawn into the world, on her own terms, for love. It's a beautiful novel, with a murder-mystery angle adding suspense.
A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles, narrated by Nicholas Guy Smith (17 hours 52 minutes)
