Of all Jane Austen´s books PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has earned a special place in the hearts of the reading public as her best-loved and most intimately known novel. From its famous opening sentence the story of Elizabeth and Darcy, told with a wit that its author feared might prove ´rather too light and bright, and sparkling´, delights its most familiar readers as thoroughly as it does those who encounter it for the first time.

On its 150th anniversary, four acclaimed authors offer personal reflections on their lifelong engagement with Louisa May Alcott´s classic novel of girlhood and growing up. For the 150th anniversary of the publication of Louisa May Alcott´s Little Women , Kate Bolick, Jenny Zhang, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jane Smiley explore their strong lifelong personal engagement with Alcott´s novel--what it has meant to them and why it still matters. Each takes as her subject one of the four March sisters, reflecting on their stories and what they have to teach us about life. Kate Bolick finds parallels in oldest sister Meg´s brush with glamour at the Moffats´ ball and her own complicated relationship with clothes. Jenny Zhang confesses to liking Jo least among the sisters when she first read the novel as a girl, uncomfortable in finding so much of herself in a character she feared was too unfeminine. Carmen Maria Machado writes about the real-life tragedy of Lizzie Alcott, the inspiration for third sister Beth, and the horror story that can result from not being the author of your own life´s narrative. And Jane Smiley rehabilitates the reputation of youngest sister Amy, whom she sees as a modern feminist role model for those of us who are, well, not like the fiery Jo. These four voices come together to form a deep, funny, far-ranging meditation on the power of great literature to shape our lives.

Pride and Prejudice captures the affections of class-conscious 18th-century English families with matrimonial aims and rivalries. This story of the Bennet family and the novel´s two protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, is told with a wit that author Jane Austen feared might prove ´´rather too light and bright, and sparkling´´. The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. Austen´s artistry is also apparent in the delineation of the minor characters: the ill-matched Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, Charles Bingley and his sisters, and particularly the fatuous Mr. Collins, whose proposal to Elizabeth is one of the finest comic passages in English literature. Austen´s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England. 1. Language: English.

CD on SUNDAZED RECORDS by BRUCE & TERRY - Best Stop pacing the floor, surf and hotrod aficionados, here´s the collection you´ve awaited for decades, the package you feared might never see legitimate release, the definitive legacy of the missing third of the Jan & Dean/Beach Boys/Bruce & Terry triumvirate.

Our package contains a total of 20 essential rides, all from the original master tapes, the charting singles ´Custom Machine´ and ´Summer Means Fun,´ all other Columbia single sides, 4 rare cuts waxed under the name The Rogues, a slew of unreleased and first-time-stereo tracks, rare photos and extensive interviews (finally!) with Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and producer-wunderkind Terry Melcher.

Glenn McGrath is an Australian cricket great - a fast bowler both feared and admired by top-level cricketers around the world. Off the field, his life was touched by tragedy with the death of his first wife, Jane, from breast cancer yet also marked by a determination to celebrate her life and make sure her legacy helps thousands of others through the Jane McGrath Foundation - now one of Australia´s biggest and most effective breast cancer charities. In Test of Will Glenn gives us an insight into the things that have shaped him both in and out of cricket. He writes about his classic cricketing duels and bowling against master batsmen like Tendulkar and Lara. He writes about his great moments, the influence of such legends of the game as Steve Waugh and Shane Warne and what he learned from them. And away from cricket he writes candidly about finding love with Sara after the tragedy of losing Jane. He writes about starting the McGrath Foundation and the enormous impact it´s had on many people´s lives. He writes about the annual Pink Test in Sydney, how it came about and what it means to him. And he writes about fatherhood, raising two children and the excitement of expecting another. This is Glenn reflecting on his career and his life up to this point in a way that´s open, honest and utterly fascinating. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike McLeish.

A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer - a woman - who travels with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the undead. She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren, the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived centuries without companionship or love. She has sustained her sanity by preparing for one purpose - to destroy her greatest enemy. Until the night she picks up the scent of a man, her unexpected salvation. Her lifemate. The curse of all Carpathian women. He is Razvan. Branded a criminal, detested and feared, he is a dragonseeker borne of one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, only to be raised as its most despised - and captive - enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan now seeks the dawn to end his terrible existence. Instead he has found his deliverance in the Dark Slayer. In spirit, in flesh and blood, in love, and in war, Ivory and Razvan are made for each other. For as long as they dare to live. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Gigante, Jane Brown.
