    A short novel by a woman first published as early as in 1688! On that merit alone it is interesting. But there is more. This is a fictional work purporting to be the story of an African prince who eventually ends up in Surinam as a slave. It is also the very touching love story of the prince and his one and only love - despite the common practice of polygamy. Tragedy and revenge, or tragic revenge, if you will, is also another strong element of the story.

    Like most of us in our twenties, Helga Crane, our American heroine and teacher in the rural South; is filled with the desire to be more than she is and to feel the world more intensely. She therefore dismisses her native Chicago, New York's Harlem, Copenhagen even. She also passes on opportunities for extended family, for marriage, and for true love. What is always latent in this truly remarkable work; is how much the background of 1920's American racial segregation defines Helga's malaise, and how much - paradoxically - is of her own doing.

Just as in this quote from this powerful work of gothic mystery and suspense by the master author, the listener is sucked in and put under a spell!

    "Ethan Frome" is set in the fictitious town of Starkfield, Massachusetts, where a visiting engineer tells the story of his encounter with Ethan Frome, a man with a history of thwarted dreams and desires. The accumulated longing of Frome ends in an ironic turn of events. His initial impressions are based on his observations of Frome going about his mundane tasks in Starkfield, and something about him catches the eye and curiosity of the visitor, but no one in the town seems interested in revealing many details about the man or his history - or perhaps they are not able to.

    "Success for a woman means absolute surrender, in whatever direction. Whether she paints a picture, or loves a man, there is no division of labor possible in her economy. To the attainment of any end worth living for, a symmetrical sacrifice of her nature is compulsory upon her." That is the dilemma this powerful and beautifully observed work centers around.

    This early novel is often called Jane Austen's Gothic parody. Decrepit castles, locked rooms, mysterious chests, cryptic notes, and tyrannical fathers are quintessential gothic ingredients; but the listener is also rewarded with Austen's typical and wonderful sense of satirical humor! Our heroine is Catherine Morland, a seventeen-year-old woman from a country parsonage. While spending a few weeks in Bath with a family friend, Catherine falls in love with Henry Tilney, who invites her to visit his family estate, Northanger Abbey.

    An absolutely fascinating, trailblazing and early work of feminism and social realism! This novel reflects the important sexual and cultural issues of the late nineteenth century. Here, women are portrayed as "odd" and marginal in relation to an ideal. Set in a smoggy London, our heroines range from the idealistic, financially autonomous Mary Barfoot; to the Madden sisters who struggle to get by in low paying jobs.

    Jane Austen's first published novel and much loved masterpiece. Two sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood - the former sensible, the latter impulsive - both fall in love with men whose affections are otherwise engaged or, as in one case, are simply unreliable. The great pleasure for the listener is reveling in the author's wonderful prose and hearing all of this tangled mess (with many great supporting characters) become untangled in both very funny and deeply moving ways.
