Sword of Honor Audiobook by Evelyn Waugh
 
03:07
I recommend you to listen to the full audiobook Sword of Honor, free at our library. This trilogy spanning World War II, based in part on Evelyn Waugh's own experiences as an army officer, is the author's surpassing achievement as a novelist. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war overwhelming. Though often somber, Sword of Honor is also a brilliant comedy, peopled by the fantastic figures so familiar from Waugh's early satires. The deepest pleasures these novels afford come from observing a great satiric writer employ his gifts with extraordinary subtlety, delicacy, and human feeling, for purposes that are ultimately anything but satiric. Sword of Honor comprises the three acclaimed novels Men at Arms, Officers and Gentlemen, and Unconditional Surrender.

The Coincidence Engine by Sam Leith
 
01:09
http://www.bloomsbury.com/the-coincidence-engine-sam-leith A hurricane sweeps off the Gulf of Mexico and in, the back-country of Alabama, assembles a passenger jet out of old bean-cans and junkyard waste. An eccentric mathematician -- last heard of investigating the physics of free will and ranting about the devil - vanishes in the French Pyrenees. And the thuggish operatives of a multinational arms conglomerate are closing in on Alex Smart - a harmless Cambridge postgraduate who has set off with hope in his heart and a ring in his pocket to ask his American girlfriend to marry him. At the Directorate of the Extremely Improbable -- an organisation so secret that many of its operatives aren't 100 per cent sure it exists -- Red Queen takes an interest. What ensues is a chaotic chase across an imaginary America, haunted by madness, murder, mistaken identity, and a very large number of unhealthy but delicious snacks. The Coincidence Engine exists. And it has started to work. Sam Leith's The Coincidence Engine is consistently engaging - one of the most enjoyable, entertaining debut novels you'll come across for ages.

01:39
A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britain's most precious colony. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister's private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it. Suspecting a disastrous conspiracy, Toby attempts to forestall it, but is promptly posted overseas. Three years on, summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely watched by Probyn's daughter Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent? Read A DELICATE TRUTH: http://po.st/ReadADelicateTruth

Leslie Hutchinson sings Cole Porter - I'm A Gigolo, 1929
 
02:59
Leslie Hutchinson -- I'm A Gigolo, From "Wake Up And Dream" (Cole Porter), Parlophone 1929 (UK) NOTE: Arthur Julien Hutchinson (nickname: Leslie "Hutch" Hutchinson) was born 1900 in Gouyave, a small fishing village on the island of Grenada. His parents saved hard to send him to the best local school and he became a child prodigy at the piano.When he was 16, his parents sent him to a medical school in the US, but instead of studying he headed straight for Harlem, where he married a black Anglo-Chinese girl, Ella Byrd, and soon fathered a daughter. When his father cut off his allowance, for a while Hutch was destitute, but soon his piano music as well as fascinating good looks impressed one of New York's first families, the Vanderbilts, who introduced him to influential patrons of the jazz scene. Having made his name as a pianist alongside other jazz legends such as Fats Waller and Duke Ellington, in 1924 he arrived in Paris, where he was involved in a long-lasting relationship with Cole Porter. That gay love affair had not restrained the handsome West Indian from involvement into more customary relationships with the movie stars Tallulah Bankhead or Merle Oberon. In revenge, Cole Porter had portrayed Hutch in a song "I'm a Gigolo", which he included into his extravaganza London's revue of 1929 "Wake Up And Dream"(it was sung in the show by Jack Buchanan). In 1927, Hutchinson travelled to London where his social patron and a sexual partner became idol of London's high society, actor Ivor Novello. With him, he entered the heremetic social circles of Mayfair, Knightsbridge or West End and became one of the most desired jazz babies of the London's nightlife scene in the Roaring Twenties Jessie Matthews, who heard Hutch singing to his own piano-playing in the orchestra pit one night, urged him to become a solo stage performer. Within a year, he had won recording contracts and had become a highly paid headliner at top London nightspots: the Cafe de Paris or the Cafe Anglais. He bought a Rolls-Royce, a grand house in Hampstead and, dressed by best London's tailors, he could boast of friendly terms with the Prince of Wales. But he was still a black man, so when he entertained at lavish Mayfair parties, his fee was enormous, but he was asked to go in by the servants' entrance. Famous English writer Evelyn Waugh satirised Hutch as the social-climbing upstart, Chokey, in his novel "Decline And Fall". The big scandal surrounded Hutch in 1930s, when he established the intimate relationship with lady Edwina Mountbatten - the vivacious, enormously rich, sexual adventuress of the highest social rank. Edwina showered costly keepsakes on Hutch: a jewelled gold cigarette case, a gold ring with her coat of arms engraved on the inside and a diamond watch. But also Hutch was made to pay a heavy price for the affair: Buckingham Palace refused to have him on any Royal Command Performance bill and Lord Beaverbrook gave orders that Hutch's name was never to be mentioned by any of his papers. During WWII Hutch was one of the first stars to volunteer his services to entertain the UK Forces, but he never received formal recognition for that and his name would never appear in any Honours list. In revenge, in early 1950s. Hutch added two members of the Royal Family to the list of his conquests: the Queen's aunt, Princess Marina and Princess Margaret, with whom Hutch enjoyed a brief liaison when she was 25 and he was 55. Yet, in the beginning of the next decade it was clear, the Hutch's heyday was over. The advent of the Beatles meant to him closure of most of his avenues of employment. In local theatres, where he used to entertain hundreds, he now played to a handful of people. Often, he wouldn't despise performing in end-of-the-pier shows where he was hardly ever billed. Drinking heavily, overweight, with six children from different mothers, he was like a gargoyle of the once-beautiful black God who had conquered high society with his voice and charm. Living in a tiny flat, he sometimes attempted to cadge money from his teenage son. In Aug. 1969 he died of pneumonia at the Royal Free Hospital, Hampstead. Only several mourners showed up at his funeral.

Many works were created during the years of conflict and many more have arisen from that period of world history. Some well-known examples of books about the war, like Nobel laureate Kenzaburō Ōe's Okinawa Notes, could only have been crafted in retrospect.

It is published in London and has been edited by Ian Hislop since 1986. The publication is widely recognised for its prominent criticism and lampooning of public figures. It is also known for its in-depth investigative journalism into under-reported scandals and cover-ups.

Sword of Honor Audiobook | Evelyn Waugh
 
03:37
Get this audiobook title in full for free: http://cwan.us/h/154154 Narrated by Simon Prebble Duration 24 hours 39 minutes This trilogy spanning World War II, based in part on Evelyn Waugh's own experiences as an army officer, is the author's surpassing achievement as a novelist. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war overwhelming. Though often somber, Sword of Honor is also a brilliant comedy, peopled by the fantastic figures so familiar from Waugh's early satires. The deepest pleasures these novels afford come from observing a great satiric writer employ his gifts with extraordinary subtlety, delicacy, and human feeling, for purposes that are ultimately anything but satiric. Sword of Honor comprises the three acclaimed novels Men at Arms, Officers and Gentlemen, and Unconditional Surrender.

The main campus covers 1,250 acres (510 ha) in a suburban setting and it contains a number of recognizable landmarks, such as the Golden Dome, the "Word of Life" mural (commonly known as Touchdown Jesus), the Notre Dame Stadium, and the Basilica. The school was founded on November 26, 1842, by Father Edward Sorin, CSC, who was also its first president. Notre Dame is consistently recognized as one of the top universities in the United States, in particular for its undergraduate education. Undergraduate students are organized into six colleges, Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering, Business, Architecture and Global Affairs. The School of Architecture is known for teaching New Classical Architecture and for awarding the globally renowned annual Driehaus Architecture Prize. The university offers over 50 foreign study abroad yearlong programs and over 15 summer programs. Notre Dame's graduate program has more than 50 master, doctoral and professional degree programs offered by the five schools, with the addition of the Notre Dame Law School and a MD-PhD program offered in combination with the Indiana University School of Medicine. It maintains a system of libraries, cultural venues, artistic and scientific museums, including the Hesburgh Library and the Snite Museum of Art. The majority of the university's 8,000 undergraduates live on campus in one of 31 residence halls, each with its own traditions, legacies, events, and intramural sports teams. The university counts approximately 134,000 alumni, considered among the strongest alumni networks among U.S. colleges.The university's athletic teams are members of the NCAA Division I and are known collectively as the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame is known for its football team, which contributed to its rise to prominence on the national stage in the early 20th century; the team an Independent with no conference affiliation, has accumulated eleven consensus national championships, seven Heisman Trophy winners, 62 members in the College Football Hall of Fame, and 13 members in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Other ND sport teams, chiefly in the Atlantic Coast Conference, have accumulated 17 national championships. The Notre Dame Victory March is often regarded as one of the most famous and recognizable collegiate fight songs. Started as a small all-male institution in 1842 and charter in 1844, Notre Dame reached international fame at the beginning of the 20th century, aided by the success of its football team under the guidance of coach Knute Rockne. Major improvements to the university occurred during the administration of the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh between 1952 and 1987 as Hesburgh's administration greatly increased the university's resources, academic programs, and reputation and first enrolled women undergraduates in 1972. Ever since, the University has seen steady growth, and under the leadership of the next two presidents, Rev. Malloy and Rev. Jenkins, many infrastructure and research expansions have been completed. Notre Dame's growth has continued in the 21st century, and it currently possesses one of the largest endowments of any U.S. university, at $13.1 billion.
