New Arrival: Out on the Wire

Out on the Wire

In our new arrivals this week is Out on the Wire by Jessica Abel, a nonfiction graphic novel all about narrative radio. From the back of the book:

Go behind the scenes of today’s most popular narrative radio shows and podcasts, including This American Life and Radiolab, in this graphic narrative.
Every week, millions of devoted fans tune in to or download This American Life, The Moth, Radiolab, Planet Money, Snap Judgment, Serial, Invisibilia and other narrative radio shows. Using personal stories to breathe life into complex ideas and issues, these beloved programs help us to understand ourselves and our world a little bit better. Each has a distinct style, but every one delivers stories that are brilliantly told and produced. Out on the Wire offers an unexpected window into this new kind of storytelling—one that literally illustrates the making of a purely auditory medium.

Our price is $8.50. Find it in our contemporary culture section.
