Winner of the 2012 Laine Cunningham Novel Award! Everybody hates their homeowner’s association, and nobody likes a zombie apocalypse. Put the two together, and Withrow Surrett is having a truly craptastic night. Not to mention the fact that he’s got one big secret to keep from the idiots in his home - Withrow is a vampire. Perishables has been called by some ´´a gripping examination into suburban ennui set in a milieu of postmodern apocalyptic horror”. Not really. Those people would be navel-gazing idiots. Perishables is a bust-your-gut funny collection of three stories about trust, human and undead relationships, what community really means, and zombies. A LOT of freakin’ zombies. Fans of The Black Knight Chronicles, The Tome of Bill, and Fred, the Vampire Accountant will love this series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Wayne.

Extraordinary and diverse people inhabit this rich, ripe, occasionally raucous collection of short stories. Some are based on real people - Jeanne Duval, Baudelaire´s handsome and reluctant muse who never asked to be called the Black Venus, trapped in the terminal ennui of the poet´s passion, snatching at a little lifesaving respectability against all odds.... Edgar Allen Poe, with his face of an actor, demonstrating in every thought and deed how right his friends were when they said, ´No man is safe who drinks before breakfast´. And some of these people are totally imaginary. Such as the 17th century whore, transported to Virginia for thieving, who turns into a good woman in spite of herself among the Indians, who have nothing worth stealing. And a girl, suckled by wolves, strange and indifferent as nature, who will not tolerate returning to humanity. Angela Carter wonderfully mingles history, fiction, invention, literary criticism, high drama and low comedy in a glorious collection of stories as full of contradictions and surprises as life itself. 1.

A unique collection of eight Alan Bennett stories, read by the author. Alan Bennett is one of Britain´s best-loved authors and an acclaimed storyteller. This exclusive compilation includes eight of his best tales, collected together for the first time. Here is his celebrated, iconic memoir ´The Lady in the Van´; as well as two fascinating autobiographical accounts of his family and childhood. ´Uncle Clarence´ sees Bennett visiting the grave of a relative who died in Flanders in 1917; while in ´Hymn´ he joins forces with composer George Fenton and the Medici String Quartet to explore his musical memories. Bennett´s incisive, acute observations shine through in his fiction too, with wry, moving and darkly humorous meditations on death (´Father! Father! Burning Bright´ and ´The Laying On of Hands´), sex (´The Shielding of Mrs Forbes) and middle-age ennui (´The Clothes They Stood Up In´). His gift for affectionate satire reaches its pinnacle in ´The Uncommon Reader´, a delightful tale in which the Queen discovers the pleasures of literature. Poignant, compassionate, wise and witty, the stories included are ´The Lady in the Van´, ´Uncle Clarence´, ´The Clothes They Stood Up In´, ´Father! Father! Burning Bright´, ´Hymn´, ´The Laying On of Hands´, ´The Uncommon Reader´ and ´The Shielding of Mrs Forbes´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Bennett.
