The Town Slowly Empties audio teaser title

The Town Slowly Empties is a calmly intense book. It is a measured reflection on the human condition—through life, art, cinema, literature and politics. It offers a lived perspective through culture during this extraordinary moment in time, a world in lockdown, and documents the effect on both the privileged and the poor.

Written by Manash Firaq Bhattacharjee, this is a sample of the audiobook narrated by Spencer Dillehay, available now on Audible and iTunes.
