This week’s pair of free audiobooks from SYNC includes a highly popular novel from acclaimed young adult author David Levithan, and an audio drama from Scottish playwright Rona Munro that will likely be new to all listeners here. Together, they are about finding love, losing love, and doing what it takes to get love back in a crazy-wonderful world.
The play is about a man who wakes up from a car crash with brain damage. Now, he sees the world as the person he was three years ago, when his life and loves were in a very different place. This leads to confusion not only for him, but also for his hospital visitors, who include his former wife and his current girlfriend. Who are we when our brains change? Do we remain the same, or do new identities emerge?
What if you went to a school where it was actually all right to be who you really are? Boy Meets Boy tells the story of the difficulties of young love in contemporary America—even in a place where gay identity, cross dressing, and football are all equally accepted and at home. Stonewall Honor and Lambda Literary Award winner. Remember, June is LGBT Pride Month!
