A Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith Audiobook

A Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith

Author: Andrew Wilson Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: March 2021

Patricia Highsmith - author of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY - had more than her fair share of secrets. During her life, she felt uncomfortable about discussing the source of her fiction and refused to answer questions about her private life. Yet after her death in February 1995, Highsmith left behind a vast archive of personal documents - diaries, notebooks and letters - which detail the links between her life and her work. Drawing on these intimate papers, together with material gleaned from her closest friends and lovers, Andrew Wilson has written the first biography of an author described by Graham Greene as the 'poet of apprehension'. Wilson illuminates the dark corners of Highsmith's life, casts light on mysteries of the creative process and reveals the secrets that the writer chose to keep hidden until after her death.

Author: Susan Glaspell Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Laurel Lefkow Release Date: November 2020

Susan Keating Glaspell was born on July 1st, 1876 in Davenport, Iowa. Glaspell, a precocious child, was an active student at Davenport High School. By 18 she was earning a salary at the local newspaper as a journalist, and by 20 she was the author of a weekly 'Society' column. At 21 she enrolled for Philosophy at Drake University, in Des Moines, where she excelled in debate competitions, and represented them at the state tournament. After graduation, Glaspell again worked as a reporter, still a rare position for a woman, and assigned to cover the state legislature and murder cases.At 24, after covering the conviction of a woman accused of murdering her abusive husband, Glaspell abruptly resigned and returned to Davenport, and a career writing fiction. Her stories were published by periodicals, including Harper's and Munsey's. In 1909, moving to Chicago she wrote her debut novel, 'The Glory of the Conquered'. It was a best-seller. So too her 2nd and 3rd and to glowing reviews.With her husband Glaspell founded the Provincetown Playhouse for plays that reflected contemporary issues.

She wrote 12 plays over 7 years for the company. By 1918 Glaspell was considered one of America's most significant new playwrights. Despite its success theatre work did not make financial sense and she continued to submit short stories in order to support her and her husband during their years with the theater. In 1931 her play, 'Alison's House', received the Pulitzer Prize. She continued to write and now with themes increasingly based on her surroundings, on family life, and on theistic questions.Susan Keating Glaspell died of viral pneumonia in Provincetown, Massachusetts on 28th July 1948.

A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide Audiobook

A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide

Author: Samantha Power Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: September 2019

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Non-fiction 2003 A shattering history of the last hundred years of genocidal war that itemises in authoritative, persuasive manner exactly what the West knew and when, and what it chose to do, and what not to do, with that knowledge. Winner of the US National Book Critics Circle Award 'The United States has never in its history intervened to stop genocide and has in fact rarely even made a point of condemning it as it occurred.' In this convincing and definitive interrogation of the last century of American history and foreign policy, Samantha Power draws upon declassified documents, private papers, unprecedented interviews and her own reporting from the modern killing fields to tell the story of American indifference and American courage in the face of man's inhumanity to man. Tackling the argument that successive US leaders were unaware of genocidal horrors as they were occurring - against Armenians, Jews, Cambodians, Kurds, Rwandans, Bosnians - Samantha Power seeks to establish precisely how much was known and when, and claims that much human misery and tragedy could readily have been averted. It is clear that the failure to intervene was usually caused not by ignorance or impotence, but by considered political inaction. Several heroic figures did work to oppose and expose ethnic cleansing as it took place, but the majority of American politicians chose always to do nothing, as did the American public: Power notes that 'no US president has ever suffered politically for his indifference to its occurrence. It is thus no coincidence that genocide rages on.' This riveting book makes a powerful case for why America, as both sole superpower and global citizen, must make such indifference a thing of the past.

After Meat: The Case for an Amazing, Meat-Free World Audiobook

After Meat: The Case for an Amazing, Meat-Free World

Author: Karthik Sekar Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: November 2021

Animals make for terrible technology. The technological use of animals--making food, drugs, clothing, and cosmetics out of animal material--will cease. A cow takes over one year to grow, 'wastes' over ninety percent of what it's fed, and cannot be innovated much further. After Meat explains the fundamental limits of animal technology in terms of physics and biology. Replacement technology such as microbial fermentation will surpass those limits. Eventually, we’ll have food that is better in every way--in terms of taste, cost, nutrition, resource consumption, and ethics--because we won't use animals to produce it. Along the way, After Meat leads us through a veritable forest of adjacent topics. We wade into evolution and reductivism, broach consciousness and the Multiverse, dive into economics and policy, bounce from weather prediction to the problem of hunger to the morality of eating plants. In sum, we ineluctably conclude that our future has little room for animal technology, and that future will be better for it.

After One Hundred Winters: In Search of Reconciliation on America's Stolen Lands Audiobook

After One Hundred Winters: In Search of Reconciliation on America's Stolen Lands

Author: Margaret D. Jacobs Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: October 2021

This poignant audiobook narrated by Laurel Lefkow exposes America’s troubled history of injustice to Indigenous people After One Hundred Winters confronts the harsh truth that the United States was founded on the violent dispossession of Indigenous people and asks what reconciliation might mean in light of this haunted history. In this timely and urgent book, settler historian Margaret Jacobs tells the stories of the individuals and communities who are working together to heal historical wounds—and reveals how much we have to gain by learning from our history instead of denying it. Jacobs traces the brutal legacy of systemic racial injustice to Indigenous people that has endured since the nation’s founding. Explaining how early attempts at reconciliation succeeded only in robbing tribal nations of their land and forcing their children into abusive boarding schools, she shows that true reconciliation must emerge through Indigenous leadership and sustained relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people that are rooted in specific places and histories. In the absence of an official apology and a federal Truth and Reconciliation Commission, ordinary people are creating a movement for transformative reconciliation that puts Indigenous land rights, sovereignty, and values at the forefront. With historical sensitivity and an eye to the future, Jacobs urges us to face our past and learn from it, and once we have done so, to redress past abuses. Drawing on dozens of interviews, After One Hundred Winters reveals how Indigenous people and settlers in America today, despite their troubled history, are finding unexpected gifts in reconciliation.
