You may know Casey Wilson from her brief stint as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," from her role on the beloved sitcom "Happy Endings" or maybe from her podcast on the Real Housewives, "Bitch Sesh." But if you're not familiar with her, you'll certainly want to be after listening to her collection of essays, The Wreckage of My Presence (6.5 hours). As author and narrator, Wilson touches on all these projects, but you don't have to be a pop culture devotee to find something relatable in her essays. 

Each story is moving and hilarious, whether she's trying to get out of an awkward dinner party, processing the death of her mother or recounting all the ways "people don't know how to act." Listening to Wilson's narration is like getting good gossip from one of your funniest friends. She's grounded but oh-so-hilarious, a combination that makes this audiobook a must-listen.
