The Dig Street Festival Audiobook

The Dig Street Festival

Author: Chris Walsh Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: April 2021

It's 2006 in the fictional East London borough of Leytonstow. The UK's pub smoking ban is about to happen, and thirty-eight-and-a-half year old John Torrington, a mopper and trolley collector at his local DIY store, is secretly in love with the stylish, beautiful, and middle class barmaid Lois. John and his hapless, strange, and down-on-their-luck friends, Gabby Longfeather and Glyn Hopkins, live in Clements Markham House - a semi-derelict Edwardian villa divided into unsanitary bedsits, and (mis)managed by the shrewd, Dickensian business man, Mr Kapoor. When Mr Kapoor, in a bizarre and criminal fluke, makes him fabulously credit-worthy, John surprises his friends and colleagues alike by announcing he will organise an amazing 'urban love revolution', aka the Dig Street Festival. But when he discovers dark secrets at the DIY store, and Mr Kapoor's ruthless gentrification scheme for Clements Markham House, John's plans take several unexpected and worrisome turns... Funny, original, philosophical, and unexpectedly moving, The Dig Street Festival takes a long, hard, satirical look at modern British life, and asks of us all, how can we be better people?

Cross Everything Audiobook

Cross Everything

Author: Henry Scowcroft Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: February 2021

A heart-wrenching, fascinating and deeply moving take on a disease that half of us will experience at some point in our lives. When Henry Scowcroft's partner Zarah was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer in 2016, their world fell apart. An award-winning science writer for Cancer Research UK, Henry had spent 14 years at the coal-face of cancer research, but now the disease had infiltrated his personal life too. In Cross Everything - his first book - Henry uses this unique perspective to tell the story of Zarah's illness, how he tried in vain to use everything he'd learnt in his professional career to try to save her, and in doing so, how he realised that even a career writing about cancer daily isn't enough preparation for what comes next. Along the way, Cross Everything brings the listener up to speed with the latest understanding of cancer - a complex disease with a Darwinian capacity to outsmart its host. "A moving, compelling and vital book, that sheds much needed light on the very latest understanding of cancer." SIDDHARTHA MUKHERJEE, author of The Emperor of All Maladies 'Sensitive and informed. Essential for anyone supporting a loved one through cancer.' Deborah James, writer and broadcaster

Author: Lynda Clark Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: October 2020

When Robert (or Kidder, as his best friend calls him) decides to impress at a job interview by making up a son, he discovers that maintaining the lie is far harder than he thought - so he invents a story that `Brodie' has been kidnapped. After all, it's not like they're going to find the fake boy. But a few weeks later, Kidder receives a call to collect his nonexistent son from the police station, a boy who looks exactly like the picture he photoshopped...

SARAH JACKSON, author of Pelt and winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize "A dark and quirky debut - funny, sad, thought-provoking and unexpected." EMMA D'COSTA, Commonwealth Writers

Impact: Reshaping capitalism to drive real change Audiobook

Impact: Reshaping capitalism to drive real change

Author: Sir Ronald Cohen Narrator: Finlay Robertson, Sir Ronald Cohen Release Date: August 2020

WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO WE WANT TO LIVE IN? Envisage a world where inequality is shrinking, where natural resources are regenerated, and people can benefit from shared prosperity. In IMPACT, Sir Ronald Cohen proposes a new theory about how the Impact Revolution will enable us to achieve systemic social and environmental improvement. Impact investing is about creating a chain reaction. One that brings innovation to the stakeholders whose engagement is crucial to tackling massive social and environmental challenges at scale. One that changes the mindset and behavior of investors, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, social organizations, big business, governments and the general public and places impact at the center of our decision-making. The Impact Revolution is already transforming the way we think about social responsibility, business models and investment. It is beginning to change our economies, turning them into powerful engines that drive capital to achieve impact alongside profit. We can already see it marking the twenty-first century as much as the tech revolution marked the twentieth. Billions of people's lives depend on the success of the Impact Revolution. There has never been a more tangible opportunity.

The Myths We Live By Audiobook

The Myths We Live By

Author: Peter Cave Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: July 2020

In this witty and mischievous book, philosopher Peter Cave dissects the most controversial disputes today and uses philosophical argument to reveal that many issues are less straightforward than we'd like to believe. Leaving no sacred cow standing, Cave uses ingenious stories and examples to challenge our most strongly held assumptions. Is democracy inherently a good thing? What is the basis of so-called human rights? Is discrimination always bad? Are we morally obliged to accept refugees? In an age of identity politics and so-called 'fake news', this book is an essential resource for reinvigorating genuine public debate - and an entertaining challenge to accepted wisdom. "Lively... Cave forces his readers to interrogate cherished beliefs and see how many of the principles enshrined in public life are not only inconsistent but incoherent, even paradoxical" THE HERALD "An elegant and erudite expose of the hypocrisies and evasions that infect the social and political thinking of our times" JOHN COTTINGHAM "Britain's wittiest philosopher" RAYMOND TALLIS "Highly entertaining, informative and challenging... If you want to check whether your beliefs about democracy, human rights and free speech aren't just prejudices - mere myths you happen to have signed up to - this is a great place to start" STEPHEN LAW "With characteristic wit, philosopher Peter Cave takes readers on a journey of discovery through a maze of perplexities. This is a profound book" DAN COHN-SHERBOK "At its best, The Myths We Live By resembles a lively tutorial, with the genial Professor Cave challenging readers' prejudices... Useful and educational" SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

Author: Emma Forrest Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: February 2020

Devastating and dazzling, Royals is the story of an unlikely friendship set against the intoxicating colour and headiness of 1980s London. Radio 2 Book Club Pick. July, 1981. London. Shy, working-class Steven finds solace in beauty. Eighteen years old, he dreams of being a fashion designer. He's also gay, maybe - he hasn't decided yet. There's a lot Steven isn't sure about, like whether he hates himself or thinks he's amazing. When he ends up in hospital after being brutally attacked by his father, he meets Jasmine, an heiress. Intoxicating, anarchic, fabulous Jasmine. Fuelled by their shared love of fashion, a friendship blossoms and soon, Steven finds himself swept into her hedonistic world, wholly beguiled. However, underneath the glitter and the frivolity, darkness lies. Devastating, dazzling, queer and radical, Royals is a love story between unlikely friends from completely different worlds. It's about the power of art to transform lives and the power of families to destroy them. It's about working out who you are and what you want. It's a tale of giddy happiness, crushing lows and, ultimately, the fragility of lives lived too fast. 'Honest, provocative and disarmingly funny' GUARDIAN 'Charming, witty and touching, an Eighties Breakfast at Tiffany's' DAVID NICHOLLS 'Dazzling ... I'm incoherent with love for it' MARIAN KEYES 'Elegant, sexy, tender, wild ... A beautiful, beautiful book' EMMA JANE UNSWORTH, author of ANIMALS

The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax

Author: Christopher Shevlin Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: October 2019

When Jonathon Fairfax accidentally helps a murderer bump off Sarah Morecambe, the secretary of a senior politician, he sets off a chain of events that astonishes him. Jonathon is wrong-footed by even the most everyday things, so he's particularly startled to find himself caught up in a conspiracy that goes right to the heart of government. Teaming up with a suave private investigator, a glamorous grannie and the probable love of his life, Jonathon must confront his greatest fears - including talking to girls and balaclava-clad killers - and answer some very difficult questions. Who murdered Sarah Morecambe? What is the strange secret that unites the entire British government? And what exactly does it feel like to kiss a real-life woman? With its naïve, reluctant hero and wry look at life, The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax has been compared to books by Douglas Adams, Carl Hiaasen and PG Wodehouse. 'You can't help being tickled' - The Guardian 'Not many books make me laugh out loud, but The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax is one of them... A comic gem' - Stylist magazine 'Shevlin was rightly picked up by the literary agency that represents the likes of David Nicholls' - Metro newspaper
