"Narrated by Holliday Grainger, star of Strike and The Capture

The book that will define a decade.

‘Girl A,’ she said. ‘The girl who escaped. If anyone was going to make it, it was going to be you.’

Lex Gracie doesn’t want to think about her family. She doesn’t want to think about growing up in her parents’ House of Horrors. And she doesn’t want to think about her identity as Girl A: the girl who escaped. When her mother dies in prison and leaves Lex and her siblings the family home, she can’t run from her past any longer. Together with her sister Evie, Lex intends to turn the House of Horrors into a force for good. But first she must come to terms with her six siblings - and with the childhood they shared.

Beautifully written and incredibly powerful, Girl A is a story of redemption, of horror and of love.

"A nonsense classic of its time.

A compelling narrative to sweep you away, from a legendary Victorian children’s author. Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland in order to entertain a friend’s daughter on a boat trip - and so generations of children have flown away on his wild imaginations.

On a sunny afternoon, Alice discovers a bottle that says DRINK ME. Unable to resist, she follows the label’s instructions...and immediately shrinks to tumble down a rabbit hole into an adventure where nothing is as it seems. From The Mad Hatter to the White Rabbit, the grinning Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts, Alice meets a cast of characters who are both eccentric and memorable.

"Dès qu'elle a senti ce petit être au creux de ses bras, si fragile, Deborah Feldman a su ce qu'elle devait faire. A peine âgée de 19 ans, elle a toujours vécu au sein de la communauté hassidique Satmar. Elle a toujours suivi les principes implacables qui régissent les moindres détails de sa vie : ce qu'elle peut porter, à qui elle peut parler... Tous les principes sauf celui de ne pas lire de littérature. Les moments de lecture volés de son enfance, passés à découvrir les êtres de papier indépendants et fiers de Jane Austen et Louisa May Alcott, lui ont donné envie de découvrir une autre vie, au milieu des gratte-ciel de Manhattan.

Elle sait qu'il est temps d'échapper à son mariage dysfonctionnel avec un homme qu'elle connait à peine, d'abandonner ses responsabilités de bonne fille Satmar et de laisser cours à ses désirs. Indépendamment des obstacles, il est temps, pour elle et son fils, de trouver le chemin du bonheur et de la liberté.

And the safe compound they built around us, far away from the toxic world, has finally been breached.

"This Penguin Classic is performed by Tanya Reynolds, star of Sex Education.

With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work. Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage.

Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protégé Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected." ©2020 Jane Austen (P)2020 Penguin Audio

"This Penguin Classic is performed by Chloe Pirrie, Sam Woolf, Michael Fox, Olivia Darnley and Terence Wilton.

At a glittering society party in St Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon's army marches on Russia and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants, to soldiers and Napoleon himself.

In War and Peace (1868-69), Tolstoy entwines grand themes - conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate - with unforgettable scenes of 19th-century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life in all its imperfection and grandeur".

Listen to the New Testament (NKJV) read in its entirety by music legend Johnny Cash. After 20 years of encouragement from his mother to record the Bible, he approached the recording of the New Testament with "fear, respect, awe, and reverence for the subject matter."

Cash added, "I also did it with a great deal of joy, because I love the Word." Enjoy listening to one of the most distinctive voices of our time in this wonderful audio edition of the Word of God.

-> Madame Bovary, Free text (French + English + German)

Translated from the French by Arthur Schurig.

"Madame Bovary ist wohl einer der bekanntesten Frauenromane überhaupt und hat eine Unzahl Nachfolger gefunden. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, das es sich um ein Erstlingsroman handelt.

Flaubert schrieb seit seiner Jugend unermüdlich. Dennoch dauerte es bis 1856, als endlich sein erstes gedrucktes Werk im Feuilleton der Revue de Paris erschien. Eben die 1851 begonnene Madame Bovary. Der Roman wurde zum Skandal und trug sowohl Flaubert wie auch der Zeitung einen Prozess wegen Verstoßes gegen die Sitten ein. Der Prozess endete mit Freispruch und trug wesentlich zum Verkaufserfolg der 1857 erscheinenden Buchversion bei.

"Trump, as extreme as he is, is less an aberration than a logical conclusion - a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century. A one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands...

Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? Naomi Klein, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and best-selling author, shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can make things better.

No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, how Trump's election was not a peaceful transition but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security.
