Entertaining and different, this is an enjoyable study of a flawed yet characterful Prince of Wales seen through the eyes of the women in his life. Edward Vll, who gave his name to the Edwardian Age and died in 1911, was King of England for the final 10 years of his life. He was 59 when at last he came to the throne. Known as Bertie, the eldest son of Victoria and Albert, he was bullied by both his parents. Although Bertie was heir to the throne, Victoria refused to give him any proper responsibilities, as a result of which he spent his time eating, betting, and womanising. Bertie´s numerous mistresses included the society hostess Daisy Brook (´Babbling Brook´), Lillie Langtry and Alice Keppel. When Bertie finally became king, he did a good job, especially in foreign policy. This colourful book gives Bertie due credit, while painting a vivid portrait of the age in all its excess and eccentricity, hypocrisy and heartbreak. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carole Boyd.

The presidential election of 1920 was among history´s most dramatic. Six once-and-future presidents--Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, and Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt--jockeyed for the White House. With voters choosing between Wilson´s League of Nations and Harding´s front-porch isolationism, the 1920 election shaped modern America. Women won the vote. Republicans outspent Democrats by 4 to 1, as voters witnessed the first extensive newsreel coverage, modern campaign advertising, and results broadcast on radio. America had become an urban nation: Automobiles, mass production, chain stores, and easy credit transformed the economy. 1920 paints a vivid portrait of America, beset by the Red Scare, jailed dissidents, Prohibition, smoke-filled rooms, bomb-throwing terrorists, and the Klan, gingerly crossing modernity´s threshold. 1.

Ernest Hemingway wrote: ´´All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.´´ The book Papa Hemingway credits has been the subject of controversy since its publication in 1884. It is an unblinking portrait of American society during slave times, as seen through the eyes of the title character, who narrates the tale. Thirteen-year-old Huck runs away from his alcoholic and abusive father in a stolen canoe. Hiding on a wooded island, he comes upon a slave named Jim, who is also fleeing--from slavery. The two set off down the Mississippi on a piece of a raft, each in search of his own kind of freedom. Some critics have condemned Huck´s attitudes towards slavery, his treatment of Jim, and his derogatory language, citing it as evidence that Mark Twain was a racist. But noted African American author Ralph Ellison rejects this criticism, saying ´´one also has to look at the teller of the tale, and realize that you are getting a black man, an adult, seen through the condescending eyes -- partially -- of a young white boy.´´ This Mark Twain In Person Library recording is an approximation of Mark Twain´s own voice, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library. 1.

Mikhail Zoshchenko´s Sentimental Tales are satirical portraits of small-town characters on the fringes of Soviet society in the first decade of Bolshevik rule. The tales are narrated by one Kolenkorov, who is anything but a model Soviet author: not only is he still attached to the era of the old regime, he is also, quite simply, not a very good writer. Shaped by Zoshchenko´s masterful hands - he takes credit for editing the tales in a series of comic prefaces - Kolenkorov´s prose is beautifully mangled, full of stylistic infelicities, overloaded flights of metaphor, tortured cliché, and misused bureaucratese, in the tradition of Gogol.

This biography was originally published in 1983 and has not been updated. Any events after 1983 are not included. Best known for his role as Hawkeye Pierce on the award-winning TV series M*A*S*H, Alan Alda has made his way into Hollywood´s spotlight while keeping remarkably free of its whirlwind parties and endless gossip. He remains a private man - an actor whose personal life and politics are far different from the character of the womanizing, side-cracking army doctor that brought him international fame. In Alan Alda: The 1983 Biography, biographer Raymond Strait succeeds in presenting Alda´s life and career with illuminating, and sometimes surprising, details. Tracing Alda´s theater credits, from his early experience as a struggling New York actor to his starring roles in films like Same Time Next Year, The Seduction of Joe Tynan, and The Four Seasons, Strait also reports on Alda´s work as a screenwriter and director. A comprehensive look at Alda´s immense popularity, this biography contains revealing insights from friends, childhood sweethearts, and fellow actors. But this is not a sugar-coated star portrait, and Strait gives us Alda´s traumas as well as his triumphs: his childhood battle with polio, his parents´ divorce, and the tense moments that Alda´s personal convictions have caused, both on the set and off. With unexpected revelations about Alda´s views on women, his work, and the future, this fascinating biography promises to show new dimensions of this talented enigmatic man. 1. Language: English.

England, 1937. In the village of Blacknowle on the Dorset coast, 14-year-old Mitzy Hatcher has endured a wild and lonely upbringing. Shunned by her neighbours, the arrival of renowned artist Charles Aubrey - along with his exotic mistress and their daughters - is like a breath of fresh air. As Charles´s muse, Mitzy develops a deep and abiding bond with the Aubrey household over the course of the following three summers. Gradually, Mitzy begins to perceive a future she had never thought possible, and a powerful love is kindled in her. It is a love that will grow as she does: from innocence to obsession, from childish infatuation to something far more complex. It will be almost 75 years before the consequences of this potent desire are fully played out, as a young man in an art gallery looks at a hastily-drawn portrait and wonders at the intensity of it. The questions he asks will lead him back to Blacknowle, and draw him to the truth about those fevered summers in the 1930s. Moving from the wilds of the Dorset coast to the intoxicating heat of a Moroccan summer, A Half Forgotten Song explores the quixotic nature of memory - and the perils of obsessive love. Audio edition read by Jacqueline King. With numerous audiobook and stage credits to her name, Jacqueline King has also had a great variety of television roles, including parts in Doctors, Doctor Who, The Bill, 55 Degrees North and Casualty. 1.

It Worked for Me is filled with vivid experiences and lessons learned that have shaped the legendary career of the four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. At its heart are Powell´s ´´Thirteen Rules´´ - such as ´´Get mad, then get over it´´ and ´´Share credit´´ - that introduce his principles for effective leadership: conviction, hard work, and, above all, respect for others. A natural storyteller, Powell offers warm and engaging parables with wise advice on succeeding in the workplace and beyond. ´´Trust your people,´´ he counsels as he delegates presidential briefing responsibilities to two junior State Department desk officers. ´´Do your best - someone is watching,´´ he advises those just starting out, recalling his own teenage job mopping floors in a factory. Powell combines the insight he gained in the military and four presidential administrations with lessons from his immigrant-family upbringing in the Bronx and his training in the ROTC. The result is a powerful portrait of a leader who is reflective, self-effacing, and grateful for everyone he works with. A brilliant and original blueprint for leadership, Colin Powell´s It Worked for Me is bound to inspire, move, and surprise readers. Includes an interview with the author. 1. Language: English.
