Short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors. Attempting the perfect murder, a killer encounters the perfect cop. After years of get-rich-quick schemes, Troy Pellingham´s bank account is empty and his options are down to one: take a job in his uncle´s rare-book shop and spend his days working for an unpleasant man whose only redeeming quality is a mammoth bank account. Though well into his 80s, Uncle Rodney is the picture of good health, and the day when Troy will inherit the old man´s money seems very far away. But then Troy gets a brilliant idea: why shelve books for a living when he can kill for a fortune? After the deed is done, a peculiarly shabby police detective comes to call. Lieutenant Columbo seems dimwitted, and Troy expects he will have no trouble putting him off the scent. But as the noose tightens around his neck, Troy realizes that no murder is too perfect for Columbo. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Berman.

Welcome to the Museum of Everything; feel free to wander round our many galleries and experience the history of everything. Children are welcome, but please keep them in the bags provided.´´ Here is the critically acclaimed comedy sketch show written and performed by Danny Robins, Dan Tetsell, and Marcus Brigstock - the team behind BBC2´s We Are History. Based on the successful Edinburgh Festival show, it´s a sketch show in disguise, themed around the world of museums, galleries, guided tours, stately homes, historial re-enactors, and obsessive collectors, and set in the vaguely mystical and apparently infinite environs of the Museum of Everything. Our guides are a pair of long-suffering, underpaid West Country museum attendants, who pop up to remind us of museum rules, announce forthcoming attractions, and reassure us that it´s never far to the promised land of the gift shop, where you can buy leather bookmarks, novelty pencil sharpeners and fudge in the shape of Jane Austen. 1.

Winner of the 2018 Republic of Consciousness Prize.Longlisted for the 2018 Dylan Thomas prize.New Statesman Books of the Year 2017.The Telegraph Books of the Year 2017.The Guardian Best Books of the Year 2017.The White Review Books of the Year 2017.Australian Book Review Books of the Year 2017.This debut collection from Eley Williams centres upon the difficulties of communication and the way in which one´s thoughts - absurd, encompassing, oblique - may never be fully communicable and yet can overwhelm. Attrib. and other stories celebrates the trickiness of language just as it confronts its limits. Correspondingly, the stories are littered with the physical ephemera of language: dictionaries, dog-eared pages, bookmarks and old coffee stains on older books. This centres on the weird, tender intricacies of the everyday where characters vie to ´own´ their words, tell tall tales and attempt to define their worlds. With affectionate, irreverent and playful prose, the inability to communicate exactly what we mean dominates this bold new collection from one of Britain´s unique and most original new writers. 1.

´All this could be yours!´ Paddington read on the glossy leaflet showing a large, sleek silver-grey car. It took him a long time to eat 15 packets of currants in order to enter the competition. And the Rolls-Royce he´d expected to win turned out to be one of 10,000 consolation prizes - a bookmark! Then Paddington finds himself taking a driving test and, much to his amazement, is presented with a license allowing him to drive a rather unusual vehicle. 1. Language: English.

In this hour: In 2008, journalist Anand Gopal travelled to Afghanistan to speak with civilians, warlords, and Taliban fighters about the US-led war in the country. In his book, No Good Men Among the Living, he argues the distinction between America´s allies and enemies in the country isn´t always clear. Next, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Pir Zubair Shah risked his life to report from Waziristan - a Taliban stronghold in northwest Pakistan - where he was detained by both the Taliban and government forces. He spoke to Jim Fleming about the dangers of reporting from that region of Pakistan. Then: In 2003, Craig Mullaney led an infantry rifle platoon along the hostile border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. He recounts the experience in his memoir, The Unforgiving Minute: A Soldier´s Education. After that... What compels someone to commit acts of terror? Anthropologist Scott Atran has spent a decade talking with jailed suicide bombers and jihadist leaders. He says they´re motivated by core human values: brotherhood, loyalty and the dream of a better world. And then, Leslie Jamison bookmarks Orphans by Charles D´Ambrosio. Finally, Norwegian novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard discusses his six-volume autobiographical novel, My Struggle. [Broadcast Date: June 20, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

Set your sights on something savory and sure to scintillate your senses This book is a smorgasbord of thought-provoking and inspirational tidbits inviting the listener to deeply focus on the good and to reflect it back through daily deeds. It looks at life as a lyrical composition played out in our daily lives through our thoughts, poetry, songs, and actions. It is a compilation of who we are, living in a fast-paced world in which our thoughts are not often absorbed, shown or appreciated. This book gives a brief view of what seemingly goes unnoticed, but is in the background of every great human endeavor. It takes you simply to the point with rhythmic, poetic, and philosophical narratives. The descriptive view in words is not instructional, but rather inspirational and motivational. No matter the background or culture of the listener, all who hear it will find something to hold on to. From a source of wisdom that spans more than a century, the author garners knowledge from his 103-year-old maternal grandmother and his mother, who is 86. This book infuses physical and mental joy, dilemma and discovery into bite-sized pieces of knowledge, into poetic and lyrical cadences. It unmistakably offers the listener a bird´s-eye view of philosophical perspectives on current and past events. It succinctly introduces and describes subjects without exaggerating them, and is careful to not exhaust the listener. The book is written in a manner that allows a listener to begin listening anywhere in the text. The listener will be able to randomly hear the book without starting at the beginning and continuing through the end. There is no need to bookmark where the listener finishes because each article is independent of the other. The non-sequential approach to the book is reminiscent of the human thought process; even when the listening of it is interrupted it finds meaning in our thoughts. The book delves into the psychology of who we are, what we think 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vernell West. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/057414/bk_acx0_057414_sample.mp3.
