4 audiobooks by high-profile authors

There's nothing like placing yourself in the hands of a skillful writer. Here are four audiobooks from veteran writers with proven track records.

1. 'A Wild Swan and Other Tales,' by Michael Cunningham

(Read by Lili Taylor and Billy Hough; Macmillan Audio; 3 CDs; 3 hours)
These rather risqué retellings of classic fairy tales are clever, enticing, and imaginative, but not for the kiddies. Modern, dark, and accompanied by original music, they are enhanced by the narrators, who veer between charm and ferocity, subtly delivering the undercurrents in Michael Cunningham’s prose.
