The Painted Veil
First published in 1925, The Painted Veil is an affirmation of the human capacity to grow, change, and forgive. Set in England and Hong Kong in the 1920s, it is the story of the beautiful but shallow young Kitty Fane. When her husband discovers her adulterous affair, he forces her to accompany him to a remote region of China ravaged by a cholera epidemic. Stripped of the British society of her youth and overwhelmed by the desolation around her, she is compelled by her awakening conscience to reassess her life. She takes up work with children at a convent, but when her husband dies, she is forced to return to England to her father, her one remaining relative, to raise her unborn child. Though too late for her marriage, she has learned humility, independence, and how to love.

The Trembling of a Leaf: Little Stories of the South Sea Islands (Library Edition)
[This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.] When noted English writer W. Somerset Maugham set off for the South Seas to regain his health, his experiences would become the bedrock for the stories represented here. These are among Maugham's best work, as well as some of the best stories ever written about the exotic South Seas. ''Mackintosh'' is a taut psychological study of two officials on a remote tropic island. ''The Fall of Edward Barnard'' is a story about what is important in life, a precursor to Maugham's well-known novel, The Razor's Edge. Love is always a subject of the tropics, and Maugham's deft, ironic handling of the theme in ''Red'' and ''Honolulu'' is masterful. ''The Pool'' tells a poignant and tragic tale about the pitfalls for love across cultures. Maugham's most famous story, ''Rain,'' about the ironic consequences of obsession, was adapted for both theater and film.

Far Eastern Tales
Far Eastern Tales is a collection of short stories born of Maugham's experiences in Malaysia, Singapore and other outposts of the former British Empire. Whether portraying a ship-borne flight from a lover's curse, murder in the jungle or a marriage shattered by a past indiscretion, they all reveal Maugham at his best – sometimes caustic, sometimes gently comic, but always the shrewd and human judge of character and soul. The stories included on this recording are Footprints in the Jungle; Mabel; P & O; The Door of Opportunity; The Buried Talent; Before the Party; Mr. Know-all; Neil MacAdam; The End of the Flight; and The Force of Circumstance.

Somerset Avenue Tracks [1992-1995]
Banco De Gaia includes: Toby Marks, Jennifer Folkes, Ted Duggan.Recorded at New World Bank, Somerset, England; The Great Pyramid At Giza, Egypt; The Temple Of Seti 1, Thebes, Egypt.Toby Marks, aka Banco de Gaia, has gone from strength to strength with each successive recording. Leaving his trancey roots far behind, the sizzling morphed worldwide grooves of IGIZEH reveals Marks' finest document yet. Forget the concept of 'fourth-world' music: this is 'multi-world' music, sounds extracted from far-flung cultures and even farther-flung machinery. The pumping synths and whooshing jungle strings of "Seti I," complete with Indian chant, could be the track aboard Voyager that sets extraterrestrial visitors on an immediate sortee to Earth. "Creme Egg" uses tribal drumbeats and whirring electronics in making its presence known, while the electronic vocalizing, exotic percussive accents and pocket trumpet sounds of "Gizeh" sound like they arose out of the seventh circle of hell. And if things weren't psychedelic enough, Marks pulls out all the stops on the Calcutta cybercafe calculus of "How Much Reality Can You Take?," which positions techno-trance music as the penultimate sound of the casbah. Turn on, tune in, bliss out.
