In search of Mozart by Phil Grabsky( visu )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 522 libraries worldwide
Neglected genius? Wunderkind? Rebellious superstar? Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756 - 1791) legend has become a series of myths that have made it almost impossible for a 21st century audience to know who the real man was. In Search of Mozart goes a long way to unravel these myths and understand the truth about this multi-faceted character. Via a detailed journey, we go to places to which Mozart is known to have travelled. This three-part series goes to the heart of old Europe and to that of genius itself. In Search of Mozart seeks to answer why Mozart is thought of as one of the world's greatest musical geniuses. Also, it asks what makes him so sublime to some, and a little too sickly to others? And what was the world like in which he travelled? Narrated through contemporary letters and accounts, In Search of Mozart features music from Europe's greatest orchestras and finest musicians; expert interviews; and some stunning towns and cities that Mozart both visited and performed in

The teenager Kafka Tamura goes on the run and holes up in a strange library in a small country town. Concurrently, Nakata, a finder of lost cats, goes on a puzzling odyssey across Japan. Only gradually do we find how these stories interweave

And Charlie's rebellious best friend Sienna is getting into more and more trouble, and taking Charlie along for the ride.

O'Loughlin's worst fears are confirmed when Sienna turns up at his front door, traumatized and covered in blood while her father Ray Hegarty, a celebrated former police officer, is found murdered. When the detective in charge of the case seems all too eager to lay the blame at Sienna's feet rather than malign the honor of a respected former colleague, O'Loughlin begins to make his own inquiries

As the case becomes ever more complex, nothing is quite what it seems and soon Joe's fate, and that of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett( file )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
Samuel Beckett, one of the great avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, was born on 13 April 1906. He died in 1989. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. His centenary will be celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, but the most popular of them all will be, without doubt, the play with which he first made his name, Waiting for Godot. It opened the gates to the theatre of the absurd as four men appear on the stage, apparently with purpose but (perhaps) waiting for someone called Godot. It is stark, funny, bemusing and still deeply affecting half a century since its first production. In this new recording for Audiobook, John Tydeman, for many years head of BBC Radio Drama, takes a fresh look at one of the milestones in Western drama
