Audrey is a new audiobook app that curates the best literary fiction and pairs each book with an expert literary guide.

The Should We Fall Behind audiobook is exclusively available on Audrey, and we're super excited to share it with the Storygraph community! It's a sharply-written and moving book about the people in society who are often made invisible, and which the Guardian called ‘intensely humane’ when it came out in 2020. The audiobook, produced by Audrey in collaboration with indie publisher Bluemoose, is read by Eaten by Lions actor Antonio Aakeel, who grew up just down the road from Sharon Duggal in Wolverhampton.

“It is fantastic to hear my book come alive via the Audrey App, and to have the added bonus of the lively in-depth reader's guide and beautiful illustrations to accompany it. The team at Audrey have gone the extra mile to create a wonderful experience for audiobook listeners and I am thrilled they have adapted Should We Fall Behind as one of their titles.” – Sharon Duggal, author.
The book’s Audrey Guide is Charlie Carroll, author of The Lip, who has twice won the K Blundell Trust Award for writers under 40 who aim to raise social awareness with their writing. As well as picking out the book’s most poignant quotes, prompting you to reflect on its themes and sharing his feelings about certain characters, Charlie provides insider insights into what makes the writing so powerful, TV and podcast recommendations in the same vein as the novel, recipes mentioned in the book and a cracker of a playlist. And it’s all illustrated by Camberwell College of Arts graduate, Hannah Buckman 👩🏽‍🎨

All Audrey audiobooks also come with chapter recaps and a much-needed character map. It's kind of like a book club for one 😉
