Siobhan Fallon (Author), Cassandra Campbell (Narrator), Tantor Audio (Publisher). Get this audiobook plus a second, free. If they didn't happen to me, they happened to someone I knew. The crummy homecomings, the stress, the fear and frustration. I understand that many readers would want stories that focus on the positive, but at least from my point of view, I'm not emotionally affected by "positive" stories. I don't read fiction for the happy ending, because it usually won't make me feel anything special.

Poignant and beautifully written, Fallon’s book especially excels as interpreted by narrator Cassandra Campbell. Campbell approaches each story as a self-contained piece, deftly avoiding the trap of not differentiating between stories. Each story is more moving than the last, and Campbell’s narration works in concert with Fallon’s masterful writing to ensure that each packs a unique emotional punch-whether one listens one at a time or back-to-back. This haunting collection is sure to impress.
A searing debut novel from the award-winning author of You Know When the Men are Gone, about jealousy, the unpredictable path of friendship, and the secrets kept in marriage, all set within the . expat community of the Middle East during the rise of the Arab Spring. A gripping, cleverly plotted novel with surprising bite.
Ellen held her back very straight and resisted figuring out the rank of the woman’s husband by her clothes or level of parenting skills. She would not play that game today.
Dear Siobhan Fallon, Yesterday I read your book. As I closed the book after reading the last story in You Know When the Men Are Gone, I couldn't help thinking that you also know when an important new talent has emerged on the literary scene. Today, in between the depressing news in the New York Times and the trivial news in the Chicago Tribune, I read it again.
