Description

The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident at Bennington, the two friends—once inseparable roommates—haven't spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy—always fearless and independent—helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country. But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice—she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice's husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Tangerine is a sharp dagger of an audiobook—a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extraordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless. Optioned for film by George Clooney's Smokehouse Pictures, with Scarlett Johansson to star.

Professional reviews

"Narrators Barrie Kreinik and Erin Mallon deliver performances to savor. Friends at Bennington, Alice and Lucy haven't spoken in over a year. Something terrible caused a rift between them. Alice has married and moved to Tangier with her husband. She loathes the place and wishes desperately to be back home. Then, Lucy appears in Tangier, wanting to make things right. At times, Kreinik makes Alice sound wispy, insubstantial, and easily buffeted about by events, while she also delivers Alice's disquieting inner monologues with tightly controlled malice. Mallon's Lucy is coolly logical, able to rationalize her behavior as any good sociopath can. As well as vivid portraits of the two women, both actors deliver convincing secondary characters, all wrapped in the exotic scents and sounds of Tangier. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
