Summary

Archie Royle is a kind, funny, gentle man. 
He's also my dad. My storyteller. My hero. 
 
Except he doesn't remember my face any more.  
His world, these days, doesn't include me or his family. 
 
Life may have changed for him, but he hasn't given up on life.  
Not at all.  
It's just different.  
 
Dad still tells his stories, albeit for a new audience. 
He makes people smile and chuckle. As he always did. 
 
He's a fighter, a survivor and maybe sometimes too clever for his own good! He'll surprise you. I can assure you of that.  
 
Welcome to Magic O'Clock, where time is irrelevant and hope is unlimited.  
 
This story is purely fictional, but the emotions are all too real.
Available since: 05/07/2017.

    At sixteen, Anne is grown up...almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. 
    Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behaviour of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

    “As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.” 
    The Metamorphosis - the masterpiece of Franz Kafka - was first published in 1915 and is one of the seminal works of fiction of the twentieth century. The novel is cited as a key influence for many of today’s leading authors; as Auden wrote:  "Kafka is important to us because his predicament is the predicament of modern man". 
    Traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, wakes to find himself transformed into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Gregor's transformation is never revealed, and as he attempts to adjust to his new condition he becomes a burden to his parents and sister, who are repelled by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become. 
    A harrowing, yet strangely comic, meditation on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosishas taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction.
