    The world will never see another peace conference like the one which took place in Paris in 1919. For six months, the world's major leaders - including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France - met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War One.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Modern Scholar again? Why?

    Margaret MacMillan's lectures, "Six Months That Changed the World: The Paris Peace Conference of 1919" are riveting. The author narrates this important 'story' in a captivating, articulate and understandable manner.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Modern Scholar?

    Lectures sometimes close with a question to which Professor MacMillan responds. Her answers are clear, balanced and insightful.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to Professor MacMillan give this series of lectures based on her book was a special treat. I really enjoyed her presentation style. She is brilliant.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once started I found every moment I could to listen - I didn't want to stop.

    Story
    (2385)

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    What did you love best about Middlesex?

    I was drawn in quickly and held, to the very last lovely 'page'.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters came to life through the amazing narration.


    Which character – as performed by Kristoffer Tabori – was your favorite?

    Desdemona.


    If you could take any character from Middlesex out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Callie, of course. Navigating through the first five minutes would be awkward but just imagine the dinner conversation!
