EW has an exclusive clip of Cynthia Nixon reading the first two chapters of Emily Giffin’s latest novel, Heart of the Matter, for its official audiobook.

Like Giffin’s previous books (Something Borrowed, Love the One You’re With), Heart of the Matter is a story about love, relationships, and infidelity, with a decidedly Sex and the City tone, so I think Nixon is a natural pick to orate it. (Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, and Kate Hudson are set to star in director Luke Greenfield’s upcoming film version of Giffin’s first novel, Something Borrowed.) Both the new book and the audiobook are set to hit store shelves tomorrow, but take a sneak-listen below, Shelf-Lifers, and see if you agree with me about Nixon’s narration.
