The Gospel according to Clarence Thomas: A Libretto Audiobook

The Gospel according to Clarence Thomas: A Libretto

Author: Ashis Gupta Narrator: Nina Richmond And Chris Cameron Release Date: June 2021

This is an imaginary drama in verse in which US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas pleads with President George Bush Jr to be allowed to chronicle the glorious presidency of Mr Bush after his second inauguration. Of course, he is allowed to do so. Thus emerges a gentle satire which is also a social commentary of our time, replete with a large cast which includes Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, the Ghost of Saddam Hussain, and others, not to mention a sombre 'Chorus of the Homeless' providing a rational commentary throughout. An echo of Greek tragedies of yore. Clarence Thomas, the pious altar boy, seemed the right person for this 'heavenly' task of penning a Gospel. The U.S. Supreme Court is a comfortable place, but not necessarily a redemptive place that Thomas craves. As a footnote, the new presidency of Joseph Biden seems a proper moment to re-visit the initiation of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991. Mr Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time and denied any corroborating witnesses to Prof. Anita Hill who had accused Thomas of Sexual misconduct, thereby assuring Thomas's nomination. One might say that this act of Senator Biden's set the precedent for the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, after Kavanaugh had also been accused of sexual misconduct.

Macbeth Audiobook

Macbeth

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Rafe Beckley Release Date: June 2021

“Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,And then is heard no more. It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and fury,Signifying nothing.” If you had the chance to seize great power for yourself and your family, what lengths would you go to to claim it as your own – and how would you live with yourself if you went against morality to do it? This is the question of Macbeth, a tragedy about seeking political gain above all else, and the consequences sacrificing one’s humanity for the sake of power. Macbeth is a general for Scotland who has been prophesied to be the future King of Scotland. Rather than wait for this prophecy to take hold of its own accord, and after taking the advice of his power-hungry wife, he murders the current king and takes his place. But it doesn’t take long for tremendous guilt and fear to take hold of him, and turn his reign into one of tyranny and brutality as he and Lady Macbeth commit more and more crimes to avoid the consequences coming for them. As Macbeth’s streak of brutality and war continues, he believes himself to be invulnerable, which ultimately leads to his downfall. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s well-known tragedies, and despite superstitions about it being “cursed,” is still often performed and presented for audiences in the modern era.

Dark Horses Audiobook

Dark Horses

Author: Susan Mihalic Narrator: Alex Allwine Release Date: May 2021

A searing and darkly gripping debut novel about a teenage girl's fierce struggle to reclaim her life from her abusive father. Fifteen-year-old equestrian prodigy Roan Montgomery has only ever known two worlds: inside the riding arena, and outside of it. Both, for as long as she can remember, have been ruled by her father, who demands strict obedience in all aspects of her life. The warped power dynamic of coach and rider extends far beyond the stables, and Roan's relationship with her father has long been inappropriate. She has been able to compartmentalise that dark aspect of her life, ruthlessly focusing on her ambitions as a rider heading for the Olympics, just as her father had done. However, her developing relationship with Will Howard, a boy her own age, broadens the scope of her vision. "A pulse-pounding, unflinching tale of one teenaged girl's iron-willed determination...Dark Horses will never leave me." SARA GRUEN, author of Water for Elephants

A Doll's House Audiobook

A Doll's House

Author: Henrik Ibsen Narrator: Phil Chenevert Release Date: May 2021

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th-century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that 'a woman cannot be herself in modern society,' since it is 'an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint.' Its ideas can also be seen as having a wider application: Michael Meyer argued that the play's theme is not women's rights, but rather 'the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she really is and to strive to become that person.' In a speech given to the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in 1898, Ibsen insisted that he 'must disclaim the honor of having consciously worked for the women's rights movement,' since he wrote 'without any conscious thought of making propaganda,' his task having been 'the description of humanity.' In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, A Doll's House held the distinction of being the world's most performed play for that year. UNESCO has inscribed Ibsen's autographed manuscripts of A Doll's House on the Memory of the World Register in 2001, in recognition of their historical value.

Designed to Deceive

Author: John Hallam Lott Narrator: John Hallam Lott Release Date: May 2021

1077, Dover Castle. More than a decade has passed since William, Duke of Normandy, defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings and was crowned King of England on Christmas Day 1066. Still faced with insurrection, both here in England and in his native Normandy, a perpetual threat to William’s authority was his half brother, Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, Earl of Kent and serial plotter against his King. Odo is about to commission a work of art depicting the events leading up to the Conquest and the great battle itself. Cruel, rapacious and ambitious, Odo intends this unique wall hanging to glorify not only his splendid new cathedral in Bayeux but also his own place in history. An undertaking of this magnitude will require a designer of extraordinary talent and expertise and Odo believes that he has found such an artist - one capable of creating a work that will outlive time itself. His choice is, however, unexpected and unusual. This is the story of that designer, the challenges faced, both artistic and authoritarian and of all the other players, both exulted and humble, who go to make up this tapestry of intrigue, murder, politics and art.

Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda Audiobook

Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda

Author: Miguel de Cervantes Narrator: Jaime Collepardo Release Date: May 2021

Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda es la última obra de Miguel de Cervantes. Pertenece al subgénero de la novela bizantina. El propio autor la consideró su mejor obra; sin embargo la crítica da este título unánimemente a Don Quijote de la Mancha. En ella escribió la dedicatoria al Conde de Lemos el 19 de abril de 1616, cuatro días antes de morir, donde se despide de la vida citando estos versos: 'Puesto ya el pie en el estribo, con las ansias de la muerte, gran señor, esta te escribo.' Publicada de forma póstuma, Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda se convirtió en 1617 en un éxito inmediato. En años sucesivos se leyó en francés, inglés e italiano, y era todavía una lectura popular en el siglo XIX. A través de un entramado de historias cruzadas, nos narra las peripecias del Príncipe Persiles y la princesa Sigismunda, dos enamorados que bajo una identidad falsa y fingiendo ser hermanos, recorren Europa de norte a sur. La lista de peligros, enredos y reencuentros sitúan esta obra en el género de la novela bizantina. Cuatrocientos años después, los lectores de hoy se adentrarán en un mar de aventuras que Cervantes quiso convertir en su testamento literario. ¡Disfruta de esta obra ahora en formato audible!

Street Nurse: Care with Caution Audiobook

Street Nurse: Care with Caution

Author: Alvin V. Williams Narrator: Kelley Young Release Date: May 2021

           Street Nurses is a hard hitting audiobook that focuses on a group of nurses and doctors that take to the streets to help out those who are sick or injured and don't have the option of going to the hospital. For some it's because their injuries are gang related and they can get arrested if they end up in the ER. For others it's because they can't afford the hospital bills or their drug addiction will only get them escorted out.            This audio dramatic series will shed light on the fractured medical system within urban communities and how some people have to take healthcare into their own hands. Inspired by real people and their every day struggles, Street Nurses will show humanity and kindness in a tough inner city neighborhood.            This audio book series is centered around a young woman named BRIANNA who went on a downward spiral after the death of her mother. She found herself alone and addicted to heroine and one day she was cornered in an alley and brutally attacked. Brianna was left for dead when suddenly a group of strangers came to her rescue and treated her injuries. She woke up in a makeshift hospital a few days later to discover that she had been saved by a private group of medical professionals known as “The Street Nurses,” and that her mother was one of the founding members before she passed away.      The Street Nurses motto is: Care with Caution as anything can happen in this volatile arena. Everyone deserves medical attention when they need it and Street Nurses are here to answer that call.

Tales From Ariosto: retold for children by a lady Audiobook

Tales From Ariosto: retold for children by a lady

Author: Ludovico Ariosto Narrator: Russell Stamets Release Date: May 2021

My young readers ought to be told that the poem of the ' Mad Orlando ' is a continuation by Ariosto of a poem by Boiardo, an earlier poet, called ' Orlando in Love.' This helps to account for the abruptness with which the characters appear on the scene, and for the allusions to adventures in which they have taken part in an earlier period of their history. I have been obliged to retain some few of these, which abound in Ariosto — such as the allusions to an earlier visit of Angelica to Europe with her brother Argalia, who was slain by Terrau, and whose helmet was carried off by that knight; to the magic ring stolen from Angelica in Albracca bv Brunello, who also on that occasion committed the thefts mentioned in the story of ' Ruggiero and Bradamante'; and others which refer to a time when Angelica loved Rinaldo and he disliked her, a state of things completely changed before the first story opens. This little explanation may, I hope, make all such allusions tolerably intelligible.
