    Plantagenet Palliser, the Duke of Omnium and former Prime Minister of England, is widowed and wracked by grief. Struggling to adapt to life without his beloved Lady Glencora, he works hard to guide and support his three adult children. Palliser soon discovers, however, that his own plans for them are very different from their desires. Sent down from university in disgrace, his two sons quickly begin to run up gambling debts.

    Story

    The Duke's Children is the last of the six books in the Pallisers series. Audible has each of the first four volumes but does not have the fifth book--The Prime Minister-- available for purchase. Accordingly, you cannot currently listen to these books in order. Audible has been advised of the problem for some time but as of now the penultimate book in the series remains unavailable.The Prime Minister is available to purchase from AudioGo.uk in cd format.

    The year is 1975 and Reno - so-called because of the place of her birth - has come to New York intent on turning her fascination with motorcycles and speed into art. Her arrival coincides with an explosion of activity in the art world - artists have colonized a deserted and industrial SoHo, are staging actions in the East Village, and are blurring the line between life and art. Reno meets a group of dreamers and raconteurs who submit her to a sentimental education of sorts.

    Would you try another book from Rachel Kushner and/or Christina Traister?

    The book was ok but someone should have gone over the correct pronunciations of people and places with Ms. Traister. Rimbaud is pronounced "Rambod", Jean Luc Godard is pronounced "Godderd", Chamonix is pronounced as if it it rhymes with tricks, etc..
