This is Capitalism: A BBC Economics Collection Audiobook

This is Capitalism: A BBC Economics Collection

Five eye-opening BBC documentaries about the hidden economic framework that surrounds our every move. Capitalism is all around us, affecting almost everything we do and impacting our daily lives in myriad ways. This comprehensive collection takes an in-depth look at this all-pervasive economic system, examining its triumphs and disasters and revealing how it puts money and markets at the centre of our world. In the explosive 10-part series The New Age of Capitalism, Newsnight's David Grossman probes the factors driving the turbo-charged growth in contemporary commerce. Exploring aspects ranging from the 'intangible economy' and AI to the trillion-dollar tech giants, he asks key questions about the way modern capitalism works, and the consequences for society. Insecure Overachievers sees leaders of elite City firms divulging the secret epidemic of anxiety and insecurity among elite professionals. Exceptionally capable and fiercely ambitious, they are driven by a deep belief in their own inadequacy, fostered by a competitive work culture that takes advantage of their vulnerabilities. The Bailout tells the compelling story of the race against time to agree a rescue plan to save Britain's banks from going bust. Told by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, with contributions from Alistair Darling, Mervyn King and Robert Peston, this is a blow-by-blow account of how events unfolded during one incredible week in October 2008. The Money Clinic goes behind the scenes as families and couples open up about their finances and their feelings with a relationship counsellor. In frank, intimate discussions, they learn how to deal with the financial issues that are coming between them, and receive practical tips on managing both their cash and the emotional side of money. And in Our House, we meet young Brighton couple Tacita and Charlie, who are desperate to buy their first home - but a property on the south coast is out of their reach. We follow them as, guided by a team of financial experts, they travel back in time to 1968, 1979, 1988, 1997 and 2009 to see which decade would have given them the best chance to get on the housing ladder.

La vida juega conmigo Audiobook

La vida juega conmigo

Author: David Grossman Narrator: Rebeca Hernando Release Date: January 2021

La nueva novela del gran autor israelí, ganador del Man Booker International y firme candidato al premio Nobel GANADORA DEL PRIMER PREMIO BERMAN DE LITERATURA NÚMERO UNO EN LA LISTA DE LOS LIBROS MÁS VENDIDOS EN ITALIA E ISRAEL «Una novela potente, dura, que en manos de Grossman se convierte en una joya.» Página 2 (TV2) «Tuvya Bruk fue mi abuelo. Vera es mi abuela. Rafael, Rafi, Erre, es, como se sabe, mi padre, y Nina... Nina no está aquí. No está, Nina. Pero esa fue siempre su exclusivísima aportación a la familia», anota Guili, la narradora de La vida juega conmigo, en su cuaderno. Pero con motivo de la fiesta del noventa cumpleaños de Vera, Nina regresa: ha tomado tres aviones que la han llevado desde el Ártico hasta el kibutz para encontrarse con su madre, su hija Guili y la veneración intacta de Rafi, el hombre a quien, muy a su pesar, todavía le tiemblan las piernas en su presencia. En esta ocasión, Nina no va a huir: quiere que su madre le cuente al fin qué sucedió en Yugoslavia durante la «primera parte» de su vida. Entonces Vera era una joven judía croata perdidamente enamorada del hijo de unos campesinos serbios sin tierras, Milosh, encarcelado bajo la acusación de ser un espía estalinista. ¿Por qué Vera fue deportada al campo de reeducación en la isla de Goli Otok y ella tuvo que quedarse sola cuando tenía seis años? La crítica ha dicho... «Grossman no imagina. Sabe y siente, [...] convencido de que esa forma de abordar la literatura le hace convertirse en una especie de médium del dolor.» Elena Hevia, El Periódico «Una de las grandes voces críticas de su Israel [...] se adentra una vez más en los territorios de la intolerancia, el racismo y la dictadura. [...] Una ficción de basereal con la figura del mariscal Tito y las ambigüedades de su régimen en la extinta Yugoslavia como telón de fondo.» Juan Cruz, El País «Sin duda la historia de la desesperación más absoluta, de la enemistad más superlativa entre madres e hijas que yo jamás haya leído. [...] Cada una de sus frases exhala un diamante con el que pulir nuestro propio destino, porque su coherencia construye una inesperada trampilla por la que lanzar sin pudor a la molicie. No dejen de leerla.» Sonia Fides, Heraldo de Aragón «Grossman es un maestro explorando las profundidades del alma humana. [...] Una novela poderosa, un retrato implacable del amor que, al igual que el odio, está motivado por mil razones o ninguna.» Rosa Ventrella, Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italia) «Devoré esta novela trepidante conteniendo el aliento, anticipando con ansia los giros y vueltas de la trama.» Walla (Israel) «Un fino polvo mágico que se asienta como la nieve: es la sensación que provoca Grossman con su magnífica nueva novela.» Giulio Busi, Il Sole 24 Ore (Italia) «Una historia que brilla por su calidez humana. Grossman ama a la gente y a sus personajes, una cualidad encomiable, pero sobre todo un gran instrumento literario. [...] Esta curiosidad y empatía cautivan al lector.» Ynet (Israel) «Convertir una historia basada en hechos reales en una historia real 'universal y precisa, atormentada por el destino y embellecida con una tremenda humanidad' requiere de la sabiduría de un narrador como Grossman.» Alessandro Zaccuri, Avvenire (Italia) «Un hito de la literatura contemporánea a escala mundial.» Danas (Serbia) «Una novela magnífica y revolucionaria.» Politiken (Dinamarca) «Grossman, el gran mecánico del alma.» Haaretz (Israel) «Una novela monumental. Cinco estrellas.» Berlingske (Dinamarca) «Una lectura impactante. Psicología profunda y una escritura excelente.» Information (Dinamarca) «Una experiencia intensa. Cinco estrellas.» Kristeligt Dagblad (Dinamarca) «Grossman posee una sensibilidad y sutileza perfectas. [...] Sigue sabiendo cómo hablar de amor y de familias con compasión y comprensión, creyendo firmemente en ambas cosas.» Makor Rishon (Israel)

A Horse Walks into a Bar Audiobook

A Horse Walks into a Bar

Author: David Grossman Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: July 2017

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman, read by Joe Barrett. WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017 The setting is a comedy club in a small Israeli town. An audience that has come expecting an evening of amusement instead sees a comedian falling apart on stage; an act of disintegration, a man crumbling, as a matter of choice, before their eyes. They could get up and leave, or boo and whistle and drive him from the stage, if they were not so drawn to glimpse his personal hell. Dovaleh G, a veteran stand-up comic - charming, erratic, repellent - exposes a wound he has been living with for years: a fateful and gruesome choice he had to make between the two people who were dearest to him. A Horse Walks into a Bar is a shocking and breathtaking read. Betrayals between lovers, the treachery of friends, guilt demanding redress. Flaying alive both himself and the people watching him, Dovaleh G provokes both revulsion and empathy from an audience that doesn't know whether to laugh or cry - and all this in the presence of a former childhood friend who is trying to understand why he's been summoned to this performance.

A Horse Walks Into a Bar

Author: David Grossman Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: February 2017

In a little dive in a small Israeli city, Dov Greenstein, a comedian a bit past his prime, is doing a night of standup. In the audience is a district court justice, Avishai Lazar, whom Dov knew as a boy, along with a few others who remember Dov as the awkward, scrawny kid who walked on his hands to confound the neighborhood bullies. Gradually, teetering between hilarity and hysteria, Dov's patter becomes a kind of memoir, taking us back into the terrors of his childhood-his beautiful flower of a mother, a Holocaust survivor in need of constant monitoring; his punishing father, a striver who had little understanding of his creative son. Finally, recalling his week at a military camp for youth-where Lazar witnessed what became the central event of Dov's childhood-Dov describes the indescribable while Lazar wrestles with his own part in the comedian's story of loss and survival. A beautiful performance by Grossman (jokes in questionable taste included).

To the End of the Land Audiobook

To the End of the Land

Author: David Grossman Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: September 2010

From one of Israel's most acclaimed writers comes a novel of extraordinary power about family life—the greatest human drama—and the cost of war. Ora, a middle-aged Israeli mother, is on the verge of celebrating her son Ofer's release from army service when he returns to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, she sets out for a hike in the Galilee, leaving no forwarding information for the "notifiers" who might darken her door with the worst possible news. Recently estranged from her husband, Ilan, she drags along an unlikely companion: their former best friend and her former lover Avram, once a brilliant artistic spirit. Avram served in the army alongside Ilan when they were young, but their lives were forever changed one weekend when the two jokingly had Ora draw lots to see which of them would get the few days' leave being offered by their commander—a chance act that sent Avram into Egpyt and the Yom Kippur War, where he was brutally tortured as POW. In the aftermath, a virtual hermit, he refused to keep in touch with the family and has never met the boy. Now, as Ora and Avram sleep out in the hills, ford rivers, and cross valleys, avoiding all news from the front, she gives him the gift of Ofer, word by word; she supplies the whole story of her motherhood, a retelling that keeps Ofer very much alive for Ora and for the reader, and opens Avram to human bonds undreamed of in his broken world. Their walk has a "war and peace" rhythm, as their conversation places the most hideous trials of war next to the joys and anguish of raising children. Never have we seen so clearly the reality and surreality of daily life in Israel, the currents of ambivalence about war within one household, and the burdens that fall on each generation anew. Grossman's rich imagining of a family in love and crisis makes for one of the great antiwar novels of our time. Translated by Jessica Cohen

Lion's Honey Audiobook

Lion's Honey

Author: David Grossman Narrator: Mel Foster Release Date: April 2006

"There are few other Bible stories with so much drama and action, narrative fireworks and raw emotion, as we find in the tale of Samson: the battle with the lion; the three hundred burning foxes; the women he bedded and the one woman that he loved; his betrayal by all the women in his life, from his mother to Delilah; and, in the end, his murderous suicide, when he brought the house down on himself and three thousand Philistines. Yet beyond the wild impulsiveness, the chaos, the din, we can make out a life story that is, at bottom, the tortured journey of a single, lonely and turbulent soul who never found, anywhere, a true home in the world, whose very body was a harsh place of exile. "For me, this discovery, this recognition, is the point at which the myth - for all its grand images, its larger-than-life adventures - slips silently into the day-to-day existence of each of us, into our most private moments, our buried secrets" From David Grossman's Introduction to Lion's Honey "A writer of passionate honesty, unafraid to ask terrible questions." Nadine Gordimer
