Shadows of Berlin

Author: David R. Gillham Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: April 2022

A captivating novel of a Berlin girl on the run from the guilt of her past and the boy from Brooklyn who loves her 1955 in New York City: the city of instant coffee, bagels at Katz's Deli, and ultramodern TVs. But in a certain walk-up in Chelsea, the past is as close as the present. Rashka Morgenstern, now Rachel Perlman, came to Manhattan with her uncle Fritz in a wave of displaced Jews who had managed to survive the horrors of war. She had hoped to find freedom from pain, in New York and in the arms of her new American husband, Aaron. But this child of Berlin cannot outrun her guilt simply by assuming the role of American housewife, not until she can shake off the ghosts of her past. And when Uncle Fritz discovers the most shocking portrait her mother had ever painted, sitting in a dreary midtown pawnshop, Rachel's memories begin to terrorize her, forcing her to face the choices she made to stay alive-choices that might be her undoing. From the cafés of war-torn Germany to the frantic drumbeat of 1950s Manhattan, Shadows of Berlin dramatically explores survival, guilt, redemption, and the ways in which we attempt to love and forgive across impossible divides.

Last Call at the Hotel Imperial: The Reporters Who Took on a World at War Audiobook

Last Call at the Hotel Imperial: The Reporters Who Took on a World at War

Author: Deborah Cohen Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: March 2022

‘A fresh, fast-paced history … Riveting’ MAYA JASANOFF ‘The celebrated journalists of the lost generation were voracious, reckless, promiscuous, funny, and drunk, and they were also shrewd and deeply political … As intimate and gripping as a novel … I read it all at once. I couldn’t stop … Brilliant’ LARISSA MACFARQUHAR They were an astonishing group: glamorous, gutsy, and irreverent to the bone. As cub reporters in the 1920s, they roamed across a war-ravaged world, sometimes perched atop mules on wooden saddles, sometimes gliding through countries in the splendor of a first-class sleeper car. While empires collapsed and fledgling democracies faltered, they chased deposed empresses, international financiers and Balkan gunrunners, then knocked back doubles late into the night. Last Call at the Hotel Imperial is the extraordinary story of John Gunther, H.R. Knickerbocker, Vincent Sheean, and Dorothy Thompson: a close-knit band of wildly famous American reporters who, in the run-up to World War II, took on dictators and rewrote the rules of modern journalism. In those tumultuous years, they landed exclusive interviews with Hitler, Franco and Mussolini who sought to persuade them of fascism’s inevitable triumph. Nehru and Gandhi also courted them, seeking American allies against British imperialism. Churchill, for his part, saw them as his best shot at convincing a reluctant America to join the war against Hitler. They grabbed front pages across the world, causing Goebbels to rage about ‘international liars and counterfeiters.’ Alongside these backstage glimpses into the halls of power, they left another set of records – equally incredible. In their private lives, Gunther, Knickerbocker, Sheean and Thompson committed themselves to the cause of freedom: fiercely and with all its hazards. They argued about love, war, sex, death and everything in between, and they wrote it all down. The fault lines that ran through a crumbling world, they would find, ran through their own marriages and friendships, too. Told with the immediacy of a conversation overheard, this revelatory book captures how the global upheavals of the twentieth century felt to live through up close.

Rahel Varnhagen: The Life of a Jewish Woman Audiobook

Rahel Varnhagen: The Life of a Jewish Woman

Author: Hannah Arendt Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: January 2022

Rahel Varnhagen: The Life of a Jewish Woman is the biography of a remarkable, complicated, troubled, passionate woman, an important figure in German romanticism, the person who in a sense founded the Goethe cult that would become central to German cultural life in the nineteenth century, as well as someone who confronted with unusual determination and bore the burden of being both a woman in a man's world and an assimilated Jew in Germany. Rahel Levin Varnhagen was, Arendt writes, 'neither beautiful nor attractive . . . and possessed no talents with which to employ her extraordinary intelligence and passionate originality.' Arendt sets out to tell the story of Rahel's life as Rahel might have told it and, in doing so, to reveal the way in which intellectual and social assimilation works out in one person's destiny. On her deathbed Rahel is reported to have said, 'The thing which all my life seemed to me the greatest shame, which was the misery and misfortune of my life-having been born a Jewess-this I should on no account now wish to have missed.' Only because she had remained both a Jew and a pariah, Arendt observes, 'did she find a place in the history of European humanity.'

When Women Ruled the World: Making the Renaissance in Europe Audiobook

When Women Ruled the World: Making the Renaissance in Europe

Author: Maureen Quilligan Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: October 2021

A leading Renaissance scholar shows in this revisionist history how four powerful women redefined the culture of European monarchy in the glorious sixteenth century. Library Journal, 'Books and Authors to Know: Titles to Watch 2021' Sixteenth-century Europe was a time of destabilization of age-old norms and the waging of religious wars-yet it also witnessed the remarkable flowering of a pacific culture cultivated by a cohort of extraordinary women rulers who sat on Europe's thrones, most notably Mary Tudor; Elizabeth I; Mary, Queen of Scots; and Catherine de' Medici. Recasting the dramatic stories and complex political relationships among these four women rulers, Maureen Quilligan rewrites centuries of scholarship that sought to depict intense personal hatreds among them. Instead, showing how the queens engendered a culture of mutual respect, When Women Ruled the World focuses on the gift-giving by which they aimed to ensure female bonds of friendship and alliance. Detailing the artistic and political creativity that flourished in the pockets of peace created by these queens, this book offers a new perspective on the glory of the Renaissance and the women who helped to create it.

Free as a Jew: A Personal Memoir of National Self-Liberation Audiobook

Free as a Jew: A Personal Memoir of National Self-Liberation

Author: Ruth R. Wisse Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: September 2021

A Jewish child born into the worst of times in Europe grows up during the best of times in North America-only to recognize that it could be moving back in the opposite direction. First came parents with the good sense to flee Europe in 1940 and the good fortune to reach the land of freedom. Their daughter, Ruth, grew up in the shadow of genocide-but in tandem with the birth of Israel, which remained her lodestar. She learned that although Jewishness is biologically transmitted, democracy is not, and both require intensive, intelligent transmission through education in each and every generation. They need adults with the confidence to teach their importance. Ruth tried to take on that challenge as dangers to freedom mounted and shifted sides on the political spectrum. At the high point of her teaching at Harvard University, she witnessed the unraveling of standards of honesty and truth until the academy she left was no longer the one she had entered.
