The Broad and Narrow Way:One Soul On Two Different Paths to Eternity Karen Frazier Romero
Japanese poetry is well-known for its clarity and concision, and The Narrow Road to the Interior and Hojoki are two of the best-loved, and most intensely Japanese, works of their kind; famous for their beautiful, delicate verse and subtle insight into the human condition. It has been said of The Narrow Road that ´it was as if the very soul of Japan had itself written it´. It takes the form of a travel diary, and traces the poet´s journey from Edo (modern-day Tokyo) to the northern interior. Hojoki, a much earlier work written by Chomei, a Buddhist hermit, is essentially a meditation on the transience of the world. Read by the famous classical Japanese actor Togo Igawa, the full beauty of its ancient cadences and rhythms is drawn out.

Meet Sam Thornton, collecter of souls. The souls of the damned, to be precise. Because of his efforts to avert the Apocalypse, Sam Thornton has been given a second chance: provided he can stick to the straight-and-narrow. Which sounds all well and good, but when the soul that Sam is sent to collect goes missing, he finds himself on a path leading straight to Hell. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Vander Ark.

Twilight in Italy describes Lawrence’s time as an educated working-class Englishman living among the Italian working men and women in the region around Lake Garda, from the Austrian Alps to the North, to Switzerland and finally Como and Milan. He captures the psyche of Italian peasants without ever romanticising or patronising them. His quick intuition locks onto their harsh, narrow lives and deep primitive emotions, exploring the very soul of Italy and its approach to life, death, belief, love, sexuality and change. His descriptions of the scenery and natural beauty of the country are evocative and find full expression in this masterpiece. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Dobson.

After the End of the World by Jonathan L. Howard brings the H. P. Lovecraft mythos into the 21st century. The Unfolded World is a bitter and unfriendly place for Daniel Carter and Emily Lovecraft. In this world the Cold War never happened because the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1941. In this world the Nazi Großdeutschland is the premier superpower and is not merely tolerated but indulged because, in this world, the Holocaust happened behind the ruins of the Iron Curtain and consumed only Bolsheviks, Communists, and others the West was glad to see gone. In this world there are monsters, and not all of them are human. But even in the Unfolded World, there are still bills to pay and jobs to do. Carter finds himself working for the German secret security service to uncover the truth behind a major scientific joint project that is going suspiciously well. The trail takes Lovecraft and him to a distant, abandoned island and a conspiracy that threatens everything. To fight it, Lovecraft must walk a perilously narrow path between forbidden knowledge and soul-destroying insanity. Fortunately, she also has a shotgun. This dark, captivating audiobook will send listeners into a twisted version of the world they will be thankful not to inhabit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ari Fliakos.

´´We do not take a trip; a trip takes us,´´ John Steinbeck noted in his 1962 classic, Travels with Charley. In the summer of 2008, Bill Barich stumbled upon a used copy of Travels in Ireland, where he has lived for the past eight years, and it inspired him to explore the mood of the United States as Steinbeck had done almost a half century before. With a hotly contested election looming, and in the shadow of an economic meltdown, Barich set off on a 5,943-mile cross-country drive from New York to his old hometown in San Francisco via Route 50, a road twisting through the American heartland. Long Way Home is the stunning result of his pilgrimage, an illuminating and perceptive portrait of America at a dramatic point in its history. Where Steinbeck returned from the road depressed about the country´s soul, Barich - while not uncritical of the narrow-mindedness and incivility of our present culture - finds brightness among the dark and rekindles his belief in the long view, as exemplified by the unbridled optimism of some high school kids in Hutchinson, Kansas, and by the undaunted spirit of an 80-year-old barber he chanced upon in Jefferson City, Missouri. ´´The world truly does renew itself while we´re looking the other way,´´ he observes. From the Eastern Shore of Maryland to the spectacular landscape of Moab, Utah, to Steinbeck´s own Salinas Valley, filled with memorable encounters and redolent with history and local color, Long Way Homeis a truthful, inspiring account of the country at a social and political crossroad. ´´The highway snakes into a tunnel,´´ Barich writes about a stretch of Route 50 in West Virginia, ´´then erupts into the light with the force of revelation.´´ 1.
