    Volume 7 of The Whistler! “I am the Whistler and I know many things, for I walk by night.” Haunting stories of fate, dramas of crime, deception, and manipulation building to a sudden and shocking denouement...and through it all, the sardonic, mocking laughter of The Whistler! One of radio’s most memorable thriller anthologies, the Whistler’s stories revolve around ordinary people, pushed by the pressures of daily life into taking drastic action. Or perhaps a sudden circumstance, an unexpected twist of life’s path, suddenly placed these protagonists on a road leading inexorably to their own destruction. Greed, lust, and perfidy of every kind figure in the plots—and when fate inevitably catches up with these unfortunate, driven souls, The Whistler is always ready, at the end, to see that the knife is properly twisted.

    Kahlil Gibran-poet, philosopher, and artist-was born in Lebanon in 1883 but spent his final twenty years of life living in the United States. The three books that compose this audiobook are collections of Gibran's aphorisms, parables, and poetic essays.The first book, The Prophet, was originally published in 1923 and is considered Gibran's masterpiece. It is written in prose poetry in twenty-eight parts, and deals with such topics as love, freedom, good and evil, religion, and death. It is a mystical and intensely subjective work, presenting the human soul as essentially noble and good.In The Forerunner, originally published in 1920, Gibran asserts that "nobody is to be blamed for our 'being' and 'having' but ourselves." Gibran makes it clear that we are our own destiny and not the toy of a blind fate.Finally, the titular entity of The Madman, originally published in 1918, is not literally mentally unbalanced; on the contrary, he is perfectly healthy. His madness is only in the eyes of others. Gibran asserts that we tend to be what society expects from us, even though these expectations could be detrimental for the development of our self-identity. Oftentimes, we veil our true selves with masks out of fear of being ridiculed by others.

    Conversations with Good Men beautifully ponders themes of love and loneliness, heartbreak and hope. Fans of poets from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, to E.E. Cummings, to Rupi Kaur and Charly Cox will appreciate Bethel Swift’s brevity, wit, transparency, and heart in this collection. 
    Through real and imagined (spoken and internal) dialogue between feminine and masculine characters, the poet invites readers to join her on a three-act journey exploring the concept of “goodness” as well as the spiritual and practical complexity of awakening as a feminist while being in relationship with one’s faith, family, friends, lovers, and self. Swift’s chapbook compassionately tackles the struggle to better understand upbringing and belief, self-esteem and desire, betrayal and healing while learning to love, lose, and become open to loving again.

    May Sarton’s poetic celebrations of the American landscapeWritten in Santa Fe, New Mexico, May Sarton’s third collection of poems takes inspiration from the land, the light, and the palette of the American Southwest. With archaeological precision, Sarton uncovers American history and heredity. “Plain grandeur escapes definition,” begins one poem. But Sarton’s America is alive with history and is continually redefined by its own settings and mythology.

    Shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, the Scottish poet’s fourth collection shimmers with “an oneiric charge and intensity” (Guardian, UK). 
     
    The Wrecking Light is an intense, moving, bleakly lyrical, and at times shocking book. These poems are written with the authority of classical myth, yet sound utterly contemporary. The poet’s gaze—whether on the natural world or the details of his own life—is unflinching and clear, its utter seriousness leavened by a wry, dry, and disarming humor. 
     
    Alongside fine translations from Neruda and Montale and dynamic retellings of stories from Ovid, the poems here pitch the power and wonder of nature against the frailty and failure of human beings. This is a book of considerable grandeur and sweep that confirms Robertson as one of the most arresting and powerful poets at work today.
