Free audio download. Unabridged. Here is F. Scott Fitzgerald's somewhat obscure short story "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" —obscure of course, until Mr. Button became conflated with Mr. Pitt. Recorded here is the complete, original story as penned by Fitzgerald in the early 1920s, published originally in Colliers and finally collected in the popular Tales of the Jazz Age. One might call Benjamin Button an odd addition to the collection, as he was born in 1860, the year prior...

The book was inspired by Christie's own trips to Baghdad with her second husband,  archaeologist  Sir  Max Mallowan , and is also one of few Christie novels belonging to the  action  and  spy fiction  genres, rather than to  mysteries  and  whodunnits . A secret summit of superpowers is to be held in  Baghdad , but it is no longer secret. A shadowy group (which is both anti-Communist and anti-Capitalist) is plotting to sabotage the event. Things get complicated when enthusiastic...

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) accomplished much in his short 45 years. Over the generations, he continued to influence the lives of both everyman and those who would one day themselves shape history, including Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While best known as the author of WALDEN, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE and other seminal works, he also continued to regularly write poems, many of them appearing within the text of his prose work. Many of these poems were recorded for...

In 1943, from a windowless basement office in London, two brilliant intelligence officers conceived a plan that was both simple and complicated— Operation Mincemeat. The purpose? To deceive the Nazis into thinking that Allied forces were planning to attack southern Europe by way of Greece or Sardinia, rather than Sicily, as the Nazis had assumed, and the Allies ultimately chose.   Charles Cholmondeley of MI5 and the British naval intelligence officer Ewen Montagu could not have been more...

Song of Myself is the core of Walt Whitman's opus magnum, Leaves of Grass. In it he celebrates himself not simply as the poet Walt Whitman in all of his great complexity, but he transcends his own "me-ness" and in doing so welcomes and embraces all of humanity and the natural world each and every corner of it equally, without reservation. Whitman is true, natural and spontaneous, without affectations. He lived comfortably in the 19th Century world, however it manifest. All 52...
