  • Tess of the D'Urbervilles

    By Thomas Hardy

    Read by Jilly Bond

    A classic novel about class, love, and morality that masterfully questions social conventions

    "Hardy is possessed of the conviction that a novel is not a toy, nor an argument; it is a means of giving truthful if harsh and violent impressions of the lives of men and women... In every book three or four figures predominate, and stand up like lightning conductors to attract the force of the elements... In short, nobody can deny Hardy's power-the true novelist's power-to make us believe that his characters are fellow-beings driven by their own passions and idiosyncrasies, while they have-and this is the poet's gift--something symbolical about them which is common to us all." - Virginia Woolf

    A hilarious exploration of the simmering tensions beneath the surface of a contented marriage.

    "The book as a whole is something like sex: by turns steamy, lovely, angry and clumsy, a muddle of fantasy, emotional baggage and awkward moments that amounts, by the climax, to a bit of a sticky mess."

  • Raising Demons

    By Shirley Jackson

    Read by Lesa Lockford

    In the sequel to Life Among the Savages, Jackson confronts the most vexing demons yet: her children.

    "At a moment when helicopter parenting is the norm, “free-range” parents are chastised for letting their children wander a few blocks alone, and the pressure feels greater than ever not only to “have it all” but to “be it all” — to manage both to pursue a successful career and to produce homemade cupcakes for every birthday — Jackson’s relaxed approach to child-rearing feels refreshingly sane. Children, she tells us, are essentially savages and demons, and ought to be treated as such: at a cautious distance, without losing sight of one’s own way of life." - The New York Times
