    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing Of Mice and Men (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: a friendship and shared dream that make an individual’s existence meaningful.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Story
    (7119)

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Story

    Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Childhood friends, then high school buddies, then long-distance confidantes, they barrel forward with their lives on sometimes parallel, occasionally intersecting, and often divergent paths. Yet the paths are always there, well-trod and deep.

    Victoria Jechart says: "Wonderfully performed..."
    "so sweet!"
    Overall

    love the irish accent, love the story, wish it was unabridged though
