The audio books market is booming and we’ve brought together some real greats ­– from Muriel Spark and George Orwell to AS Byatt and Yann Martel.

Our best-selling titles are here, so whether you love Richard Holloway’s eloquent musings on faith, David Eagleman’s unpacking of the human mindSteven Hall's thrilling The Raw Shark Texts, or Patrick Ness's The Crane Wife, there’s something to suit every taste.

We’ve also teamed up with our friends at Faber and Faber to make their diverse range available for download. We will jointly publish up to a dozen new titles each year – including masterpieces such as Remains of the Day (read by The Wire's Dominic West) and The Unbearable Lightness of Being. You can view the entire Canongate Faber audio list here.

We can recommend Things That Are - a whimsical and beautiful meditation on the natural world which we think falls somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and the poetry of John Donne. Here author Amy Leach reads a chapter of her work. Also tiitles from Edinburgh author Muriel Spark, a writer whose works John Updike says 'linger in the mind as brilliant shards'. Our audio editions of A Far Cry From Kensington and Memento Mori are brilliantly read by Juliet Stevenson and Eve Karpf.
