Cleis Press, a publisher of cross-genre titles based in the Bay Area, has released new audio books featuring literary fiction than defies genre.
The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov, by gay literati Paul Russel, portrays a fictionalized imagining of the life of Vladimir Nabokov's gay younger brother. Marlen Haushofer's The Wall, a dystopian feminist classic, tells of a woman's struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic literary novel. The Wall has also been recently made into an independent oscar-nominated film by Music Box Films. Dark Secret Love: A Story of Submission, by Alison Tyler, is a luscious and literary meta-memoir hailed as "What all of us had hoped Fifty Shades would actually be." (Violet Blue). Timely and unique, Jia: A Novel of North Korea follows the adventures of an orphaned young woman, Jia in the 1970s and 1980s — bitterly tumultuous times for North Korea and China.
