Ways Of Escape Audiobook

Ways Of Escape

Author: Graham Greene Narrator: Jamie Parker Release Date: December 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. With superb skill and feeling, Graham Greene retraces the experiences and encounters of his extraordinary life. His restlessness is legendary; as if seeking out danger, Greene travelled to Haiti during the nightmare rule of Papa Doc, Vietnam in the last days of the French, Kenya during the Mau Mau rebellion. With ironic delight he recalls his time in the British Secret Service in Africa, and his brief involvement in Hollywood. He writes, as only he can, about people and places, about faith, doubt, fear and, not least, the trials and craft of writing. ©Graham Green 1980 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

The Lawless Roads Audiobook

The Lawless Roads

Author: Graham Greene Narrator: Barnaby Edwards Release Date: December 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. In 1938 Graham Greene was commissioned to visit Mexico to discover the state of the country and its people in the aftermath of the brutal anti-clerical purges of President Calles. His journey took him through the tropical states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where all the churches had been destroyed or closed and the priests driven out or shot. The experiences were the inspiration for his acclaimed novel, The Power and the Glory. ©Graham Greene 1978 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Journey Without Maps Audiobook

Journey Without Maps

Author: Graham Greene Narrator: Kris Dyer Release Date: December 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. WITH A FOREWORD BY TIM BUTCHER AND AN INTRODUCTION BY PAUL THEROUX Leaving Europe for the first time in his life, Graham Greene set out in 1935 to discover Liberia, then a virtually uncharted republic on the shores of West Africa. This captivating account of his arduous 350-mile journey on foot - a great adventure which took him from the border with Sierra Leone to the Atlantic coast at Grand Bassa - is as much a record of one young man's self-discovery as it is a striking insight into one of the few areas of Africa untouched by Western colonisation. Journey Without Maps is regarded as a masterclass in travel writing. © Graham Greene 1936 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Three Simple Lines: A Writer’s Pilgrimage into the Heart and Homeland of Haiku Audiobook

Three Simple Lines: A Writer’s Pilgrimage into the Heart and Homeland of Haiku

Author: Natalie Goldberg Narrator: Natalie Goldberg Release Date: December 2020

One of the world's foremost writing teachers invites readers on a joyful journey into the reading and origins of haiku A haiku is three simple lines. But it is also, as Allen Ginsberg put it, three lines that "make the mind leap." A good one, he said, lets the mind experience "a small sensation of space which is nothing less than God." As many spiritual practices seek to do, the haiku's spare yet acute noticing of the immediate and often ordinary grounds the reader in the pure awareness of now. Natalie Goldberg is a delightfully companionable tour guide into this world. She highlights the history of the form, dating back to the seventeenth century; shows why masters such as Basho and Issa are so revered; discovers Chiyo-ni, an important woman haiku master; and provides insight into writing and reading haiku. A fellow seeker who travels to Japan to explore the birthplace of haiku, Goldberg revels in everything she encounters, including food and family, painting and fashion, frogs and ponds. She also experiences and allows readers to share in the spontaneous and profound moments of enlightenment and awakening that haiku promises.

Don't Go There: From Chernobyl to North Korea - one man's quest to lose himself and find everyone el

Author: Adam Fletcher Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: November 2020

It was supposed to be a normal city break . . . . . . it ended in the strangest places in the world. They shouldn't have tear gassed bestselling (bald) author Adam Fletcher. It ruined his supposedly normal holiday in Istanbul, made him curious, and began a quest to visit places everyone else is trying to escape from, and tourists don't normally go to. In this hilarious travel memoir, he'll enter a blizzard in China armed with only biscuits; pose as a scientist to sneak into Chernobyl; be chased by Croatian police boats en route to Liberland (the world's newest country); stalk the Sheriff of Transnistria (its most corrupt); become a reluctant diving board star in a North Korean water park, and much more. Accompanied by his eccentric German girlfriend, Annett, this adventure to ten unusual destinations will also put their sanity, safety and relationship in jeopardy. Packed full of interesting people (including the Devil incarnate and someone having their mind remotely controlled), weird locations, and British humor, Don't Go There takes you on an unforgettable journey with an award-winning travel writer.

One Hundred Years of Exile: A Romanov's Search for Her Father's Russia Audiobook

One Hundred Years of Exile: A Romanov's Search for Her Father's Russia

Author: Tania Romanov Narrator: Becky Parker Release Date: November 2020

One Hundred Years of Exile: In Search of My Father’s Russia is the story of one woman’s journey through 100 years of history to find peace with her father. Tania Romanov Amochaev and her father were both exiled from their homelands as infants; both knew life in refugee camps. Their shared fate does not lead to mutual understanding. The family’s immigration to San Francisco heralded a promising new future—but while Tania just wanted to be an American, her father could not trust that this was his final asylum. His fears and his resistance to assimilation leave Tania with deep resentment toward him and her Russian heritage. Decades later, his unexpected death exposes Tania’s open wounds and a host of unanswered questions about her father and his story. A serendipitous meeting with a last surviving member of the Russian royal family, followed by a baffling error that miraculously connects her with unknown relatives, catapults Tania on a quest for answers in her father’s homeland. Tania’s story proves inseparable from Russia’s, featuring Cossacks who fled revolution, a family who survived Stalin, and a family of royal exiles, culminating in a meeting between princess and peasant. One Hundred Years of Exile is a moving story of how revisiting the past can bring not only forgiveness and redemption, but something far more powerful as well.

A Russian Journal Audiobook

A Russian Journal

Author: John Steinbeck Narrator: Richard Poe Release Date: November 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. Just after the iron curtain fell on Eastern Europe John Steinbeck and acclaimed war photographer, Robert Capa ventured into the Soviet Union to report for the New York Herald Tribune. This rare opportunity took the famous travellers not only to Moscow and Stalingrad - now Volgograd - but through the countryside of the Ukraine and the Caucasus. A RUSSIAN JOURNAL is the distillation of their journey and remains a remarkable memoir and unique historical document. Steinbeck and Capa recorded the grim realities of factory workers, government clerks, and peasants, as they emerged from the rubble of World War II. This is an intimate glimpse of two artists at the height of their powers, answering their need to document human struggle. © John Steinbeck 1948 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
