Still Life With Tornado

Written by A.S. King | Narrated by Karissa Vacker
An Earphones Award winner that The New York Times calls “moving” and “unapologetically strange”: As her parents’ marriage begins to crumble, Sarah, a talented young artist, is forced to unravel the web of lies that has shrouded her family for years. “Listeners will cheer for this resilient heroine and welcome the peace she finds at last” (AudioFile).


A heartbreaking and mindbending story of a talented teenage artist’s awakening to the brokenness of her family from critically acclaimed award-winner A.S. King.

Sixteen-year-old Sarah can’t draw. This is a problem, because as long as she can remember, she has “done the art.” She thinks she’s having an existential crisis. And she might be right; she does keep running into past and future versions of herself as she wanders the urban ruins of Philadelphia. Or maybe she’s finally waking up to the tornado that is her family, the tornado that six years ago sent her once-beloved older brother flying across the country for a reason she can’t quite recall. After decades of staying together “for the kids” and building a family on a foundation of lies and domestic violence, Sarah’s parents have reached the end. Now Sarah must come to grips with years spent sleepwalking in the ruins of their toxic marriage. As Sarah herself often observes, nothing about her pain is remotely original-and yet it still hurts.

Insightful, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful, this is a vivid portrait of abuse, survival, resurgence that will linger with listeners long after the final moments.
