    Orwell's own experiences inspire this semi-autobiographical novel about a man living in Paris in the early 1930s without a penny. The narrator's poverty brings him into contact with strange incidents and characters, which he manages to chronicle with great sensitivity and graphic power. The latter half of the book takes the English narrator to his home city, London, where the world of poverty is different in externals only.

Murrow, Averell Harriman, and John Gilbert Winant. Drawing from a variety of primary sources, Olson skillfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious Franklin Roosevelt and a reluctant American public to support the British at a critical time.

    At the turn of the century, the short story form gained enormous popularity. Against the frozen Alaskan landscape of "To Build a Fire", a miner struggles to survive the splintering whiteness of sub-zero temperatures. "Isle of Voices" captures the Hawaii of old, where magic transports a young man to an island of powerful spirits. "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" pits a mongoose against a cobra in the steamy beauty of an Indian garden. Recorded Books’ award-winning narrators turn these stories into absorbing productions.

    In the days between May 24th and 28th, 1940, the British War Cabinet held a historical debate over whether to negotiate with Hitler or to continue the war. In this magisterial work, John Lukacs demonstrates the decisive importance of those five days. Lukacs takes us hour by hour into the critical unfolding of events at 10 Downing Street, where Churchill, who had only been prime minister for a fortnight, painfully considered his war responsibilities.

She knows exactly what she wants: a calm, sensible husband very much like Lord Francis Fairford - and very unlike her childhood nemesis, the dark and devilish Henry, Viscount Montgomery. Yet no matter how much she insists that she will not be beholden to desire, the irrepressible Henry insists on kissing her. Worse, Sabrina can't help kissing him back…Her ardent response to Henry's touch leaves him no doubt. She wants him, not Fairford, or any of the other suitors trying to win her hand.

    Jackie Mason is quite rightly a comedic legend. Mel Brooks is often quoted as saying 'Nobody makes me laugh harder'. Mason is funny. Period. In this recording he takes aim and hits everyone from Bill Clinton to John Major to TV to Shakespeare. Most famous for poking fun at his own culture and other Jews he nonetheless has a wonderful way of getting his point across with warmth, barbs and of course wit.

    London’s Soho district underwent a spectacular transformation between the late Victorian era and the end of the Second World War: Its old buildings and dark streets infamous for sex, crime, political disloyalty, and ethnic diversity became a center of culinary and cultural tourism servicing patrons of nearby shops and theaters. Indulgences for the privileged and the upwardly mobile edged a dangerous, transgressive space imagined to be "outside" the nation.
