We release Neville Jason’s final recording: The Periodic Table, by Primo Levi – available on audiobook for the very first time. A blend of philosophy, science and autobiography, the collection tells of the author’s experiences as a Jewish-Italian chemist before, during and after Auschwitz. We cannot imagine it in better hands (or voice) than Neville Jason’s, and we commend it to you wholeheartedly.
Henry James’s wonderfully ambiguous The Turn of the Screw remains one of the most successful ghost stories ever written. Are the children at Bly possessed, or is our narrator descending into madness? Penelope Rawlins’s vivid reading perfectly conveys the pervasive sense of evil.
Andrew Cullum reads Daniel Defoe’s classic tale of survival, Robinson Crusoe. Exceptionally popular, the novel has captured the imaginations of generations of readers; Crusoe walking the limits of his small domain, a typical Englishman carrying his umbrella in the blazing tropics, has become a resonant modern myth.
