The White Witch, Aslan, fauns and talking beasts, centaurs and epic battles between good and evil—these have become a part of our collective imagination through the classic volumes of The Chronicles of Narnia. Yet who was the man who created this world? This audio book attempts to unearth the making of the first Narnian, C. S. Lewis himself. One of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential religious writer of his day, Lewis was also an Oxford don and a scholar of medieval literature who loved to debate philosophy at his local pub.

Hampered, as he sees it, by a family that never manages to be quite like other families, he recounts his early years in Leeds - 'a place where one learned early on the quite useful lesson that life is generally something that happens elsewhere': there is hiking every Sunday, trips into town and teas in cafes. It's an ordinary childhood; Bennett's father's a butcher, his mother a reader of women's magazines who dreams of coffee mornings and cocktail parties and life 'Down South'.

Based on newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk - a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate - became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This left him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, freee spirits, and free individuals.

Gael Greene , the highly respected restaurant critic for New York magazine, whose fierce wit and sensuous prose changed the way Americans think about food, and the author of the sensational bestseller Blue Skies , and No Candy , lifts the lid on her most provocative subject yet— herself. And oh, what a pot-au-feu it is, bubbling over with piquant humor, saucy erotic adventures, and some of the most lovingly described meals in literature {at Le Pavillon, Lutece, Troisgros, Tour d'Argent, La Pyramitle, Girardet, Le Bernardin). From Manhattan's snootiest boites to the gourmand shrines of France and Italy, this is the story of a woman who invented a fabulous career out of dining on someone else's dollar.
