A Far Cry from Kensington Audiobook

A Far Cry from Kensington

Author: Muriel Spark Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: May 2013

The narrator is one Mrs. Hawkins. She writes from Italy, a far cry from Kensington indeed, taking us back to her threadbare years in postwar London. As a young, rather fat war-widow she spent her days working for a crazy, almost bankrupt publisher; and her nights offering advice from her boarding-house in South Kensington. In both locations our heroine soon uncovered difficulties: shady literary dealings; anonymous letters, blackmail, and even suicide. Whilst Mrs. Hawkins innocently, confidently put about setting things right, she could little imagine the ensuing mayhem and consequences. Now many decades older, thinner, and pleased with her situation in Italy, Mrs. Hawkins reflects on all those dark happenings, recounting how her own life changed forever. Narrated by Juliet Stevenson, A Far Cry from Kensington shows Muriel Spark at the mature height of her powers. Rediscover this classic on the 100th anniversary of Muriel Spark's birth.

A Room of One's Own Audiobook

A Room of One's Own

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: July 2011

"A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction . . ." First published in 1929, A Room of One's Own is Virginia Woolf's pioneering work on women in literature. An accessible yet fiercely astute polemic, it is a crystallisation of the intelligent analysis behind her novels, and confirms her as a writer not only of style, but of undeniable substance. Ranging from discussing Austen's pandering to a male writing style, to imagining the dreadful fate of Shakespeare's talented, intelligent sister, Woolf makes the topic an enjoyable journey through her imagination, filling in for the undocumented in female history, and exploring the loss to the literary landscape in her own entertaining, convincing prose.

Apple Tree Yard Audiobook

Apple Tree Yard

Author: Louise Doughty Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: January 2014

Yvonne Carmichael sits in the witness box. Her charge is murder. Before all this, she was happily married, a successful scientist, a mother of two. Now she is a suspect squirming beneath fluorescent lights and the blank yet penetrating gaze of her lover — and alleged accomplice. As she speaks to the prosecution, she must piece together the story of her affair with this unnamed figure who has charmed and haunted her. And there he is, staring, wearing the same suit he wore on their first meeting, when he put his hand on her elbow and guided her to a deserted chapel, where she began to undress. Yvonne’s is a tale of sexual intrigue and the ruthlessness of our urges. Driven by a heedless passion, she enters a life of treachery and infidelity. In her rapture, she tells herself stories that will explain her lover’s secrecy — he is a dark and appealing silhouette behind the veil of her trembling desire. But Yvonne has failed to notice the danger about to blindside her from a seemingly innocuous angle, and this act of violence reveals that her ability to exact justice and revenge has been compromised. Everything hinges on one night in a dark little alley called Apple Tree Yard. How high can passion mount before it becomes madness? In her life of complacency and privilege, has Yvonne been denying the truth about herself? And can this trial reveal something dark and unforgivable behind her placid front? Suspenseful, erotically charged, and masterfully paced, Louise Doughty’s Apple Tree Yard is a psychological thriller that calls to mind Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl even as it stakes out its own chilling territory. This is a story about desire and its consequences by a writer of phenomenal gifts.

Argonautika Audiobook

Argonautika

Author: Apollonius Rhodius, Peter Green Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: November 1999

Jason, a young prince, is sent on a perilous expedition but comes through various ordeals with the aid of the king's daughter, Medeia, winning the golden fleece and carrying off Medeia herself. He is a very modern figure, not at all Achillean: almost an anti-hero. Along the way, the story incorporates vivid accounts of early exploration and colonizing ventures. Peter Green's lively, readable verse translation captures the swift narrative movement of Apollonios's epic Greek.

Black Beauty: The Greatest Horse Story Ever Told Audiobook

Black Beauty: The Greatest Horse Story Ever Told

Author: Anna Sewell Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: December 2020

The story of noble Black Beauty is one of the most popular children's books of all time. In this sensitive children's adaptation, Beauty movingly describes the friends, people and places - good and bad - that he encounters in the course of his dramatic life as he is passed from master to master. Anna Sewell wrote her book in the late 19th century as an attempt to improve the conditions of the working horse. It remains a unique document of a time when horses were the main means of transport and a heartfelt message against cruelty to animals. While primarily teaching about animal rights, it also looks at how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect. In this audiobook, a beautiful soundscape transports readers to the heart of each scene. Beauty's narrative is complemented by hundreds of facts about cab horses and carriage horses in town and country and the practicalities of their treatment and ill-treatment. This powerful audiobook and its fascinating context can be enjoyed and understood by a new generation of animal lovers. Narrated by the formidable Juliet Stevenson, who has over read 140 audiobooks, she brings the characters of Black Beauty to life. © 1887; 1997 Anna Sewell; Caryn Jenner © 2000 DK Audio
