From his remarkable debut The Hawk in the Rain (1957) to his death in 1998, Ted Hughes was a colossal presence in the English literary landscape. He was also admired as a performer of his own work. Crow is one of his most significant collections, focusing on the central figure of the crow - predatory, mocking and indestructible. Crow is read here by the author in its entirety and with narrative links not included in the published text. Ted Hughes (1930-1998) was born in Yorkshire. The Hawk in the Rain was published by Faber and Faber and was followed by many volumes of poetry and prose for adults and children, including Moortown Diary (1979). He received the Whitbread Book of the Year for both Tales from Ovid (1997) and Birthday Letters (1998). He was Poet Laureate from 1984, and in 1998 he was appointed to the Order of Merit. 1.

The Arbuckle Mountain pass in southern Oklahoma is treacherous any time of the year, but a winter ice storm turns the scenic highway into a death trap for Evelyn Maloney, Teah’s mother. Letters from her mother speak of shamanism and reveal the true meaning of her name. Teah’s confusion mounts as she stands in her mother’s private attic sanctuary. And the 28 blue bound journals where the unknown past of her mother’s life is yet to be revealed only feed her growing inner tension. Overwhelmed with the feeling of falling, her anxiety is made worse with nightmares and dreams of a buffalo, a grandfather with long silver braids, and a re-headed man with brilliant blue eyes. Evil is afoot and it is up to Teah to banish the evil from her life. The man in her dreams continues to haunt her. Who is he? What’s with the fox, buffalo, salmon and crow invading her dreams? Will her mother’s love and her written journals answer the questions Teah desperately needs? 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Clemens.

C.Y. Chong's captivating and insightful revelation about what it's like to spend over two decades at WWF. This light-hearted collection of memoirs tells the compelling story of a company executive who walked away from global corporations and immersed himself in the world of non-profit; in this case, WWF, one of the world's largest conservation organizations. After years of working in the corporate sector, C.Y. Chong decided to pursue a new avenue of work. He joined WWF International as a finance manager and was soon promoted to director of finance; however, this audiobook is about his non-financial experiences. Life on Planet WWF follows Chong as he travels and tells of a myriad of interesting and unforgettable happenings; being attacked by a mad crow being one. From fitting the letters "WWF" into a television interview as many times as possible, to having cocktails with HRH Prince Philip, he recalls visits to conferences, field projects, or other events - each anecdote providing a unique insight into some of his truly extraordinary experiences at WWF. This book makes an interesting listen for anyone thinking about a career outside the corporate sector as well as for the five million supporters of WWF and everything it stands for. 1.

Georges Simenon's haunting tale about the lengths to which people will go to escape from guilt, translated by Linda Coverdale as part of the new Penguin Maigret series. A first ink drawing showed a hanged man swinging from a gallows on which perched an enormous crow. And there were at least twenty other etchings and pen or pencil sketches that had the same leitmotif of hanging. On the edge of a forest: a man hanging from every branch. A church steeple: beneath the weathercock, a human body dangling from each arm of the cross... Below another sketch were written four lines from François Villon's Ballade of the Hanged Men. On a trip to Brussels, Maigret unwittingly causes a man's suicide, but his own remorse is overshadowed by the discovery of the sordid events that drove the desperate man to shoot himself. Georges Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1903. Best known in Britain as the author of the Maigret books, his prolific output of over 400 novels and short stories have made him a household name in continental Europe. He died in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he had lived for the latter part of his life. Linda Coverdale is the awarding-winning translator of many French works and has been honoured with the title of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contribution to French literature. 1.
