In partnership with Texas Monthly, the following articles highlighting Texas business and culture are now available in a bundle as an audio download:

* "The Slow Life and Fast Death of DJ Screw" by Michael Hall, read by Matt Bull
* "Dreaming of Her" by Pamela Colloff, read by Staci Snell
* "He Ain't Going Nowhere" by John Spong, read by Bruce DuBose
* "A Home of Last Resort" by Sonia Smith, read by Mallorie Rodak
* "The Shelf Life of John Mackey" by Tom Foster, read by Matt Bull

"The Slow Life and Fast Death of DJ Screw" by Michael Hall is the layered story of one of the most influential cultural figures in Texas -- a generous godfather to a generation of rappers, an entrepreneur of Houston's mean streets, and the master of a scene fueled by codeine cough syrup and hip-hop beats.

"Dreaming of Her" by Pamela Colloff is the exclusive oral history of Selena Quintanilla Perez, as recalled by her closest family and friends.

"He Ain't Going Nowhere" by John Spong profiles Guy Clark, the godfather of Nashville songwriters.

"A Home of Last Resort" by Sonia Smith reports on a doomsday community for the rich under construction in Ector, Texas.

"The Shelf Life of John Mackey" by Tom Foster is the exclusive story that led up to that momentous decision for Whole Foods to sell itself to Amazon.
Antonia Lloyd-Jones has translated works by many of Poland's leading contemporary novelists and reportage authors, as well as crime fiction, poetry and children's books. Her translation of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by 2018 Nobel Prize laureate Olga Tokarczuk was shortlisted for the 2019 Man Booker International prize. For ten years she was a mentor for the Emerging Translators' Mentorship Programme, and is a former co-chair of the UK Translators Association. View titles by Various
