The Communist Manifesto: with an introduction by Yanis Varoufakis Audiobook

The Communist Manifesto: with an introduction by Yanis Varoufakis

Author: Karl Marx Narrator: Leighton Pugh, Yanis Varoufakis Release Date: April 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. The Communist Manifesto is a timeless classic providing intelligent insight into socialism, communism and today's group identity politics. This edition includes a new introduction by the economist and bestselling author of Adults in the Room, Yanis Varoufakis. The Communist Manifesto was first published in London in 1848, by two young men in their late twenties. Its impact reverberated across the globe and throughout the next century, and it has come to be recognised as one of the most important political texts ever written. Maintaining that the history of all societies is a history of class struggle, the manifesto proclaims that communism is the only route to equality, and is a call to action aimed at the proletariat. It is an essential read for anyone seeking to understand our modern political landscape. © Yanis Varoufakis 2018 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Twelve Red Herrings Audiobook

Twelve Red Herrings

Author: Jeffrey Archer Narrator: Joan Walker, Leighton Pugh Release Date: March 2021

An imprisoned man is certain that his supposed murder victim is very much alive... a female driver is pursued relentlessly by a menacing figure in another vehicle... a young artist gets the biggest break of her career... a restless beauty manages the perfect birthday celebration... an escaped Iraqi on Saddam Hussein's death list pays an involuntary visit to his homeland... How will they react? How would you? Twelve Red Herrings is the third collection of irresistible short stories from master storyteller, Jeffrey Archer. Cleverly styled, with richly drawn characters and ingeniously plotted storylines, each of the twelve tales ends with a delightfully unexpected turn of events. - Jeffrey Archer is a bestselling British author and former politician. He was educated at Oxford and went on to become a Member of Parliament, the deputy chair of the Conservative Party as well as sitting in the House of Lords. His political career ended in scandal and he turned to writing and he has been published in over 275 million copies worldwide. He is perhaps most famous for the 'Clifton Chronicles' and his blockbuster 'Kane and Abel' which was number one on the New York Time's Bestseller list and inspired a popular miniseries starring Peter Strauss and Sam Neill. After he was imprisoned for perjury in 2001, he wrote his highly acclaimed non-fiction series, Prison Diaries - 'Hell', 'Purgatory' and 'Heaven' - which were inspired by his experiences and loosely structured around Dante's Divine Comedy.

One Fat Englishman

Author: Kingsley Amis Narrator: Leighton Pugh Release Date: December 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. Brimming with gluttony, booze and lust, Roger Micheldene is loose in America.

But his American hosts seem made of sterner stuff. Who will be Roger's undoing? Irving Macher, the young author of an annoyingly brilliant first novel? Father Colgate, the priest who suggests that Roger's soul is in torment? Or will it be his married ex-lover Helene? One thing is certain - Roger is heading for a terrible fall.

I Want It Now

Author: Kingsley Amis Narrator: Leighton Pugh Release Date: December 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. The quickest way to get rich is to marry someone rich, but how do you do this if you aren't yet rich?

With his unerring eye for absurdity and class satire Kingsley Amis shows us what happens when money meets naked ambition. © Kingsley Amis 2012 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
