Go with Richard Wentworth, alias the Spider, as he blazes his way through a series of horrific death traps to a fiery finale!

    Eugene O'Neill's drama Anna Christie was first produced on Broadway in 1921 and received the Pulitzer Prize in 1922.  It focuses on three main characters: Chris Christopherson, a Swedish captain of a coal barge and longtime seaman, his daughter Anna, who has grown up separated from her father on a Minnesota farm, and Mat Burke, an Irish stoker who works on steamships.  At the beginning of the play Chris and Anna are reunited after fifteen years apart.  Anna comes to live on her father's coal barge, but hides the secret of her past from him.  When she meets Mat after an accident in the fog, they almost immediately fall in love - but Anna finds that forging a new future will not be easy.

    “Thomas Heise has written a deeply moving account of loss, migration, and memory that blurs the line between poetry and prose” (Montreal Review of Books).   The narrator in Thomas Heise’s adventurous novel tries to fuse together his present and past, abandonment by his parents, childhood in an orphanage, and a strong sense of disconnection from his adult life. The story is written in columnar, densely lyrical sections, looping and vertiginously dropping into the speaker’s past, across several cities in Europe. W.G. Sebald, Samuel Beckett, and Michelangelo Antonioni’s films come to mind, especially L’Avventura and Red Desert. Heise’s language is precise (dirigibles “no larger than a fennel seed”) and his lush, unfolding sentences offer a great, gorgeous pleasure. Moth is a haunting, one-of-a-kind novel that will stay with the reader for a long, long time.   “Neither memoir, poem, nor novel, Moth is somehow all three—an effusive ramble through the space of language and the language of memory . . . Heise seems capable of doing anything with words.” —Publishers Weekly   “It’s impossible to convey in a few lines the enormous pleasures of this book—the beauty of the design, the incandescent prose, its rigor and intelligence. A deeply melancholic and moving work of art.” —Carole Maso, author of The Room Lit by Roses   “The silence between the words, between the pages is terrific.” —Michael Martone, author of The Blue Guide to Indiana

    Charles Dickens' 1854 novel opens with the philosophy of education espoused by the eminently practical Mr. Gradgrind, who prizes "facts and calculations."  He raises his children, most prominently Louisa and Tom, to eschew imagination and emotion and embrace order and reason.  The results are disastrous: Louisa marries out of duty to the supposed self-made man Mr. Bounderby, while Tom grows up dissolute, ultimately commits theft and blames it on an unfortunate laborer, Stephen Blackpool.  Set in the fictional Coketown, a mill town in the north of England, Dickens' novel satirizes capitalism, social mobility, class stratification, and Utilitarianism.  This dramatic reading of the novel features a full cast of LibriVox volunteers, who lend their voices to Dickens' vibrant comic characters.  (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

    The Grand Inquisitor is a parable told by Ivan to Alyosha in Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Brothers Karamazov (1879–1880). Ivan and Alyosha are brothers; Ivan questions the possibility of a personal, benevolent God and Alyosha is a novice monk. The Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel and one of the best-known passages in modern literature because of its ideas about human nature and freedom, and because of its fundamental ambiguity. In the tale, Christ comes back to earth in Seville at the time of the Inquisition. He performs a number of miracles (echoing miracles from the Gospels). The people recognize him and adore him, but he is arrested by Inquisition leaders and sentenced to be burnt to death the next day. The Grand Inquisitor visits him in his cell to tell him that the Church no longer needs him. The main portion of the text is the Inquisitor explaining to Jesus why his return would interfere with the mission of the church. (Summary by Wikipedia)
