Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey Around Britain Audiobook

Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey Around Britain

Author: Elizabeth Gowing Narrator: Elizabeth Gowing Release Date: October 2019

Elizabeth Gowing is not a likely yogini. She is too fond of cake and To-do lists, and sometimes falls over on her mat. But yoga has taken her on journeys both inside and out and now she follows yoga around Britain - from the village hall where a quivering triangle pose was interrupted by the council recycling collection to a sound gong bath in the country's noisiest city, from Cornwall to Scotland. She discovers prisoners finding solace in child's pose; children finding expression in dancer pose, and dancers sitting bendily in cobbler's pose. Her feet start to hurt and she realizes that yoga is a current of shared experience that runs quietly through British society, through Middle England to the nation's extremes from Newcastle to Nottingham, East Anglia to West Kilbride, she untangles the Ashtanga from the Kundalini, the Sanskrit from the whimsical new-age, and finds the ways that yoga is rebuilding communities and lives - and her own wobbling body. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, Gowing evokes the characters and communities she meets along a fascinating journey in a celebration of ancient wisdom solving modern-day problems and the exultation of finally mastering the Crow.

Walk Sleep Repeat Audiobook

Walk Sleep Repeat

Author: Stephen Reynolds Narrator: Martin Allanson Release Date: October 2019

On the Plain of Snakes Audiobook

On the Plain of Snakes

Author: Paul Theroux Narrator: Joseph Balderrama Release Date: October 2019

The master of contemporary travel writing, Paul Theroux, immerses himself in the beautiful and troubled heart of modern Mexico Nogales is a border town caught between Mexico and the United States of America. A forty-foot steel fence runs through its centre, separating the prosperous US side from the impoverished Mexican side. It is a fascinating site of tension, now more than ever, as the town fills with hopeful border crossers and the deportees who have been caught and brought back. And it is here that Paul Theroux will begin his journey into the culturally rich but troubled heart of modern Mexico. Moving through the deserts just south of the Arizona border, Theroux finds a place brimming with charm, yet visibly marked by both the US border patrol looming to the north and mounting discord from within. Attending local language and culinary schools, driving through the country and meeting its people, Paul Theroux gets under the skin of Mexico. From the writer praised for his 'curiosity and affection for humanity in all its forms' (New York Times Book Review), On The Plain of Snakes is an urgent and mesmerising exploration of a region in conflict. Praise for Paul Theroux: 'As cool as Maugham... as observant, intuitive, wry, inventive and eloquent as Graham Greene' Sunday Times 'Theroux's work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged' Observer 'The world's most perceptive travel writer' Daily Mail 'One of the most accomplished and worldly-wise writers of his generation' The Times

Footnotes: A Journey Round Britain in the Company of Great Writers Audiobook

Footnotes: A Journey Round Britain in the Company of Great Writers

Author: Peter Fiennes Narrator: Peter Fiennes Release Date: September 2019

Peter Fiennes follows in the footsteps of twelve inspirational writers, bringing modern Britain into focus by peering through the lens of the past. The journey starts in Dorset, shaped by the childhood visions of Enid Blyton, and ends with Charles Dickens on the train that took him to his final resting place in Westminster Abbey. From the wilds of Skye and Snowdon, to a big night out in Birmingham with J. B. Priestley and Beryl Bainbridge, Footnotes is a series of evocative biographies, a lyrical foray into the past, and a quest to understand Britain through the books, journals and diaries of some of our greatest writers. And as Fiennes travels the country, and roams across the centuries, he wonders: 'Who are we? What do we want? They seemed like good questions to ask, in the company of some of our greatest writers, given these restless times.' 'I didn't really know that I'd been waiting for a more literary and stylish Bill Bryson to update Notes from a Small Island, but that's just what Footnotes is, and I loved it.' - THE OBSERVER 'Marvellously quotable...It's not the place, but the mind and spirit of the author that makes a guidebook special. ...Fiennes' literary journey makes for a provocative and engaging book.' FINANCIAL TIMES Weekend travel feature & book credit, DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A series of illuminating walks around the British Isles' DISCOVER BRITAIN

On the cusp of turning 65, a man and his beloved rescue dog of similar vintage take a poignant, often bemusing, and keenly observed journey across America and discover a big-hearted, welcoming country filled with memorable characters, a newfound appreciation for the life they temporarily left behind, and a determination to live more fully in the moment as old age looms.

North Korea Journal Audiobook

North Korea Journal

Author: Michael Palin Narrator: Michael Palin Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. THE BOOK BEHIND THE HIT CHANNEL 5 DOCUMENTARY A glimpse of life inside the world's most secretive country, as told by Britain's best-loved travel writer. In May 2018, former Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter Michael Palin spent two weeks in the notoriously secretive Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a cut-off land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside has barely moved beyond a centuries-old peasant economy but where the cities have gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground train stations. His resulting documentary for Channel 5 was widely acclaimed. Now he shares his day-by-day diary of his visit, in which he describes not only what he saw - and his fleeting views of what the authorities didn't want him to see - but recounts the conversations he had with the country's inhabitants, talks candidly about his encounters with officialdom, and records his musings about a land wholly unlike any other he has ever visited - one that inspires fascination and fear in equal measure. Written with Palin's trademark warmth and wit, and illustrated with beautiful colour photographs throughout, the journal offers a rare insight into the North Korea behind the headlines.

Three Men in a Boat: Penguin Classics Audiobook

Three Men in a Boat: Penguin Classics

Author: Jerome K. Jerome Narrator: Blake Harrison Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Blake Harrison, star of The Inbetweeners, also known for his roles on screen in A Very English Scandal and Todd Margaret, as well as on London's West End in Waitress. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by David Carroll. Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks - not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency. Three Men in a Boat was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian 'clerking classes', it hilariously captured the spirit of its age. (c) 1889, Jerome K. Jerome (P) 2019 Penguin Audio

Live a Little Audiobook

Live a Little

Author: Madeleine Reiss Narrator: Olivia Mace Release Date: September 2019

Two sisters. Two different lives. One hell of a ride . . . Lottie has always followed the rules, her life is comfortable and she is - finally, finally - marrying her long-term, reliable, boyfriend Dean. Tina is carefree, wild and, maybe, just a little bit careless. She doesn't understand Lottie's obsession with settling down with 'dull Dean', there's so much to explore in the world. The two sisters have drifted apart, living in different countries until the death of their older sister, Mia. Mia was the glue that held them together, made them a family and without her Lottie and Tina realise how little they know each other. Desperate to remedy this, Tina convinces Lottie to cancel her hen do, fly halfway around the world and set out on a road trip across the US, just the two of them. But Tina has one more thing up her sleeve to shake up Lottie's life - she must say yes to everything Tina suggests, no matter what. Praise for Madeleine Reiss's previous work: 'Gorgeous and Emotional' Fern Britton 'I found it deeply moving and couldn't stop reading' Susan Lewis 'An emotional, romantic and gentle read about love and family; I'm glad I got the chance to be introduced to author Madeleine Reiss' A Spoonful of Happy Endings

To the Island of Tides Audiobook

To the Island of Tides

Author: Alistair Moffat Narrator: David Rintoul Release Date: August 2019

In "To the Island of Tides," Alistair Moffat travels to - and through the history of - the fated island of Lindisfarne. Walking from his home in the Borders, through the historical landscape of Scotland and northern England, he takes us on a pilgrimage in the footsteps of saints and scholars, before arriving for a secular retreat on the Holy Isle. Lindisfarne, famous for its monastery, has long been a place of sanctuary. It is an island rich in history: the Romans knew it as 'Insula Medicata'; it reached the height of its fame in the dark ages, even survived Viking raids, before ultimately being abandoned after Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries. Today the isle maintains its position as a space for retreat and spiritual renewal. "To the Island of Tides" is a meditation on the power of place, but also a more personal journey; a chance for a personal stocktaking and a reflection on where life leads us.
