Essays on Elsewhere

By André Aciman, Edoardo Ballerini (Narrator)

Publication Date: January 2, 2023


This program is read by Earphones Award–winning narrator Edoardo Ballerini.

"Edoardo Ballerini reads my books exceptionally well. He gets my pacing, the inflections of muted irony, the anxiety of loss, the search for meaning that my prose on paper isn’t always able to convey—he gets it all. He gets me. A writer couldn't be luckier." —Andre Aciman

A Boston Globe Best Nonfiction Book of 2011.

Celebrated as one of the most poignant stylists of his generation, André Aciman has written a luminous series of linked essays about time, place, identity, and art that show him at his very finest. From beautiful and moving pieces about the memory evoked by the scent of lavender; to meditations on cities like Barcelona, Rome, Paris, and New York; to his sheer ability to unearth life secrets from an ordinary street corner, Alibis reminds the reader that Aciman is a master of the personal essay.
