After the Quake

After the Quake

Author: Haruki Murakami Narrator: Adam Sims, Rupert Degas, Teresa Gallagher Release Date: 01/03/2021

Brought to you by Penguin. For the characters in after the quake, the Kobe earthquake is an echo from a past they buried long ago. Satsuki has spent thirty years hating one man: did her desire for revenge cause the earthquake? Miyake left his family in Kobe to make midnight bonfires on a beach hundreds of miles away. Fourteen-year-old Sala has nightmares that the Earthquake Man is trying to stuff her inside a little box. Katagiri returns home to find a giant frog in his apartment on a mission to save Tokyo from a massive burrowing worm. 'When he gets angry, he causes earthquakes,' says Frog. 'And right now he is very, very angry.' © Haruki Murakami 2000 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

After the Quake: Stories

After the Quake: Stories

Author: Haruki Murakami Narrator: Adam Sims, Rupert Degas, Teresa Gallagher Release Date: 01/01/2014

In 1995, the physical and social landscape of Japan was transformed by two events: the Kobe earthquake, in January, which destroyed thousands of lives, and the poison-gas attacks in the Tokyo subways in March, during the morning rush hour. Following these twin disasters, Haruki Murakami abandoned his life abroad and returned home to confront his country’s grief. The subway attack led to his recent Underground. And out of the quake come these six stories, set in the months between natural catastrophe and man-made terrorism. His characters find their resolutely normal everyday lives undone by events even more surreal (yet somehow believable) than we have come to expect in his fiction. An electronics salesman, abruptly deserted by his wife, is entrusted to deliver a mysterious package but gets more than he bargained for at the receiving end; a Thai chauffeur takes his troubled charge to a seer, who penetrates her deepest sorrow; and, in the unforgettable title story, a boy acknowledges a shattering secret about his past that will change his life forever. But the most compelling character of all is the earthquake itself—slipping into and out of view almost imperceptibly, but nonetheless reaching deep into the lives of these forlorn citizens of the apocalypse. The terrible damage visible all around is, in fact, less extreme than the inconsolable howl of a nation indelibly scarred—an experience in which Murakami discovers many truths about compassion, courage, and the nature of human suffering.

Bleak House

Bleak House

Author: Charles Dickens Narrator: Sean Barrett, Teresa Gallagher Release Date: 01/05/2007

A complex plot of love and inheritance is set against the English legal system of the mid-nineteenth century, with all its tortuous avenues and disguised resolutions. Here is the firm, Jarndyce & Jarndyce, the young orphan and ward of court Ester Summerson (who tells much of the story). As always, it is the skilled pen of Dickens himself that creates the momentum with his acute eye for both individual characters and their traits, and the backdrop of Victorian London.

Dr Crippen

Dr Crippen

Great British Trials presents a fascinating glimpse into three of the most notorious crimes and trials of the last 100 years. Through original trial transcripts, eyewitness accounts and contemporary newspaper reports, we witness the actual events that made each trial a cause célèbre of its day. Mild-mannered Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen committed one of the most famous English murders of the 20th century - in early 1910 he dismembered his wife's body and buried the remains. His subsequent trial at the Old Bailey was expected to be a mere formality, but Dr Crippen pleaded 'Not Guilty!', and so begins this strangely moving tale of passion and despair. The Trial of Doctor Crippen starring Andrew Sachs as Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen Fully dramatised starring Andrew Sachs; Norman Bird; Geoffrey Whitehead; John Baddeley; Teresa Gallagher; Howard Ward; Robin Welch; Andrew Wincott.

Emily Dickinson is one of America's greatest writers. This selection includes 147 of her best known poems, and is a perfect introduction to her unique voice.

Jane Austen, A Biography

Jane Austen, A Biography

Author: Elizabeth Jenkins Narrator: Nicolas Soames, Teresa Gallagher Release Date: 01/05/2000

This highly enjoyable account of the life of Jane Austen is regarded as the classic biography of one the greatest English novelists. It illustrates not only the character and opinions of an unusually perceptive and gifted woman, but also the social life amongst the county gentry of Georgian England. Outside her writing, Jane Austen's main interest was her large and affectionate family and their circle of friends. This is the world she so brilliantly depicted in her novels, and Elizabeth Jenkins shows how often the settings and characters mirrored the writer's own life in Hampshire.

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Narrator: Teresa Gallagher Release Date: 01/01/2007

Since its first publication in 1885, Little Lord Fauntleroy has become a favourite with children. The move from New York to his ancestral castle comes as a shock to both Cedric and his new-found relatives, and while he comes to terms with aristocratic ways, they become more aware of compassion and social justice. The text is read with elegance by Teresa Gallagher, a much-admired Naxos reader, whose own childhood was divided between the US and UK.
