The Joy Luck Club

Four Chinese women, drawn together by the shadow of their past, meet in San Francisco to play mah jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and to "say" stories to each other. Nearly 40 years later, one of the women has died, and her daughter arrives to take her place. However, the daughter never expected to learn of her mother's secret lifelong wish - and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation creates among the women an urgent need to remember the past. What is lost between generations and among friends - and what is salvaged - resonates throughout this novel of friendship among women and the relations between mothers and daughters.

William Shakespeare Audio

William Shakespeare is the British poet and playwright widely considered to be the greatest ever to write in the English language. He is also one of the most widely read playwrights of all time, having most of his work translated in into every major living language. Though most historical accounts place his birth in April of 1564, little is known about his early years. The Shakespeare we now know makes his first real appearance as a playwright in the late 1580s, and it is from this point on until his death in 1616 that the world was treated to some of the greatest works of literature ever produced. These works include tragedies, comedies, poems, historical fiction and more. His titles are beyond classic: "Hamlet", "Macbeth", "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Romeo and Juliet" and "Henry V" are just a few of the works that are still being read, performed and translated to this day. Indeed, Shakespeare has been voted one of the most important people of the last millennium and all writers are indebted to the vibrant characterization, innovative plotting, and philosophical scope he brought to the art of writing.
