Summary

Anton Chekhov's 'The Collected Novellas & Short Stories' showcases the brilliance of one of Russia's most celebrated literary figures. Chekhov's masterful storytelling and keen observations of human nature are evident in over 200 titles included in this collection. His writing style is characterized by its realism and attention to detail, capturing the complexities of everyday life with poignancy and depth. Set against the backdrop of 19th century Russia, Chekhov's works provide valuable insights into the social and cultural dynamics of the time. Readers can expect a rich tapestry of characters and themes that continue to resonate with modern audiences. Anton Chekhov, a trained physician, drew inspiration for his writing from his medical practice as well as his observations of society. His unique perspective as a doctor allowed him to delve into the human condition with empathy and sensitivity. Chekhov's personal experiences and background in both science and literature influenced his distinct narrative voice and thematic explorations in his works. I highly recommend 'The Collected Novellas & Short Stories of Anton Chekhov' to readers interested in exploring the complexities of human relationships and societal dynamics through a masterful lens. Chekhov's timeless stories offer profound insights into the human experience and continue to captivate readers with their enduring relevance and emotional depth.

    British music industry veteran David Stark grew up in north-west London during the 1960s as a dedicated Beatles fan, who was lucky enough to meet his musical heroes on various memorable occasions. From gatecrashing the Yellow Submarine film premiere in 1968 and sitting right behind them, to meeting the group individually in some extraordinary circumstances, he recalls his many Beatles encounters here for the first time. However, Stark’s stories don’t end with the ’60s, as he continued to encounter all the solo Beatles into the ’70s and beyond, culminating in 2006 with Sir Paul McCartney inducting him as a ‘Companion of LIPA’ for his work with songwriting students, which he still does. You’ll also learn about his career as record promoter; music trade editor and publisher; Blue Plaque initiator; and life-long drummer, among his many other achievements. 
    SPECIAL FEATURES: 
    1) Two forewords, written and read by Richard Buskin and Lesley-Ann Jones, two close friends of Stark's who are both acclaimed best-selling authors in their own right: 
    2) Part of an exclusive interview with John Lennon's best friend and former member of The Quarrymen, Pete Shotton (1941-2017). In 1983 Stark spoke at length with Shotton, who is heard here for the first time in his own words. This includes him talking about his reaction to Lennon's murder in December 1980, and rushing to George Harrison's house in Henley-on-Thames that same morning. 
    3) Beatles tribute song 'Gold Songs' recorded by Fab Gear (vocals: Ben Champniss). Music & lyrics written by David Stark, who also plays drums on it and is co-producer. This special homage to The Beatles appears at the end of the audiobook, while a short section of the intro also opens it. (A video montage can also be found at YouTube).

    The Underground Railroad Part 2

    This is one of the most remarkable volumes of the century. Its publication has only been made possible by a combination of circumstances which seldom attend the birth of a book. Before emancipation, and while the bane of slavery was on the country, the thrilling facts of this volume could not have been made public. Peace and the blessing of freedom permit their publication, free circulation and unmolested reading.Of all the thousands who favored freedom for the slaves, who gloried in the odium attached to anti-slaveryism, who witnessed the frequent efforts of the bondsmen to escape, who aided them in their quest for liberty, few dared to take notes of what they witnessed, and fewer still dared to preserve them, lest they should be turned into witnesses against them.But one man, and that the author of this book, is known to have succeeded in preserving anything like a full account of the workings of the UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, as it was called before emancipation. These records grew on his hands during the years he acted as Chairman of the Philadelphia Branch of that celebrated corporation, until they reached the extent of the present volume. They are made up of letters received, of interviews held, of narratives taken down at the time, of real reminiscence and authentic biography. Nothing imaginative enters into the composition of the volume. It is simply succinct history, always startling, sometimes bloody. The annals of no time since the Inquisition are so full of daring ventures for life and liberty or heroic endurance under most trying circumstances. (from the Publisher)William Still is often called the Father of the Underground Railroad. Over 14 years, he helped hundreds of slaves escape to freedom in Canada. Still was committed to preserving the stories of the bondmen and he kept careful records of the many escaped slaves who passed through the Philadelphia “station”. The Underground Railroad was published in 1871 from Still’s records and diaries. In bringing you these stories, Librivox volunteers are reading from the 1878 edition. (Summary by MaryAnn)Complete list of recordings comprising this book:The Underground Railroad, Part 1, The Underground Railroad, Part 2, The Underground Railroad, Part 3, The Underground Railroad, Part 4, The Underground Railroad, Part 5.

    Dombey and Son, Charles Dickens's story of a powerful man whose callous neglect of his family triggers his professional and personal downfall, showcases the author's gift for vivid characterization and unfailingly realistic description. As Jonathan Lethem contends in his Introduction, Dickens's "genius . . . is at one with the genius of the form of the novel itself: Dickens willed into existence the most capacious and elastic and versatile kind of novel that could be, one big enough for his vast sentimental yearnings and for every impulse and fear and hesitation in him that countervailed those yearnings too. Never parsimonious and frequently contradictory, he always gives us everything he can, everything he's planned to give, and then more
