From the author of the widely acclaimed debut novel Seating Arrangements, winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for First Fiction: a gorgeously written, fiercely compelling glimpse into the demanding world of professional ballet and its magnetic hold over two generations. Astonish Me is the irresistible story of Joan, a young American dancer who helps a Soviet ballet star, the great Arslan Rusakov, defect in 1975. A flash of fame and a passionate love affair follow, but Joan knows that, onstage and off, she is destined to remain in the background. She will never possess Arslan, and she will never be a prima ballerina. She will rise no higher than the corps, one dancer among many.After her relationship with Arslan sours, Joan plots to make a new life for herself. She quits ballet, marries a good man, and settles in California with him and their son, Harry. But as the years pass, Joan comes to understand that ballet isn’t finished with her yet, for there is no mistaking that Harry is a prodigy. Through Harry, Joan is pulled back into a world she thought she’d left behind - back into dangerous secrets, and back, inevitably, to Arslan.Combining a sweeping, operatic plot with subtly observed characters, Maggie Shipstead gives us a novel of stunning intensity and deft psychological nuance. Gripping, dramatic, and brilliantly conjured, Astonish Me confirms Shipstead’s range and ability and raises provocative questions about the nature of talent, the choices we must make in search of fulfillment, and how we square the yearning for comfort with the demands of art.  1.

A handful of humans and a multitude of robots create a new society on a mysteriously abandoned Earth in this breathtaking science fiction classic from one of the genre's acknowledged masters. What if you woke up one morning on Earth...and no one else was there? That is the reality that greeted a handful of humans, including Jason Whitney, his wife Martha, and the remnants of a tribe of Native Americans in the year 2135. Their inexplicable abandonment had unexpected benefits: the eventual development of mental telepathy and other extrasensory powers, inner peace, and, best of all, near immortality. Now, 5,000 years later, most of the remaining humans live a tranquil, pastoral life, leaving technological and religious exploration to the masses of robot servants who no longer have humans to serve. But the unexpected reappearance of Jason's brother, who had teleported to the stars many years before, threatens to change everything yet again - for John Whitney is the bearer of startling information about where Earth's population went and why. And the most disturbing news of all: They may finally be coming home again. Nominated for the Hugo Award when it first appeared in print more than 40 years ago, Clifford D. Simak's brilliant and thought-provoking A Choice of Gods has lost nothing of its power to astonish and intrigue. A masterwork of speculative fiction, intelligent and ingenious, it is classic Simak, standing tall among the very best science fiction that has ever been written. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Berkrot. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/023179/bk_adbl_023179_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn...it's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since. - Ernest Hemingway Samuel Langhorne Clemens - better known by his pen name of Mark Twain - towers over all other American writers. But who was the man behind the novels? In this revealing, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Twain's extraordinary life, expertly separating fact from fiction, biography from legend. Here we see how Twain rose from an impoverished boyhood on the Mississippi to become one of the nation's most famous men, using the very material of that impoverished boyhood to propel his rise. But Twain's life also had more than its share of tragedy, and his story is also one of failure, bankruptcy, and grievous loss. Twain guides the listener through Twain's many rises and falls, showing how this master author spun both his highs and lows into literary gold, changing the face of world literature forever. "Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest." - Mark Twain 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.
