    Les Misérables is set in Paris after the French Revolution. In the sewers and backstreets we encounter “the wolf-like tread of crime,” where assassination for a few coins is all in a day’s work. We weep with the unlucky and heartbroken Fantine, and we exult with the heroic revolutionaries of the barricades. But above all we thrill to the steadfast courage and nobility of soul of ex-convict Jean Valjean, always in danger from the relentless pursuit of the diabolical Inspector Javert.

    In The Last Chronicle of Barset, Trollope concludes his saga of ecclesiastical life. Josiah Crawley, a proud, impoverished clergyman, faces difficult legal circumstances. Caught amidst poverty, Josiah appears to have stolen a check and is forced to stand trial—despite the fact that he cannot remember its origins. To make matters worse, his daughter Grace desperately seeks the approval of Archdeacon Grantly, whose son she intends to marry. The Last Chronicle of Barset is a joyful end to the Chronicles of Barsetshire. Trollope skillfully weaves together plot threads and characters from earlier novels in the series and provides a fond farewell tour of his cherished diocese.

    Bleak House is a complex plot of love and inheritance set against the nineteenth-century English legal system with all its tortuous avenues and disguised resolutions. In the legal firm of Jarndyce & Jarndyce, a young orphan and ward of court Esther Summerson 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 as well as the backdrop of Victorian London.

    Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language. Set in the shadow of Homer’s Odyssey, internal thoughts—Joyce’s famous stream of consciousness—give physical reality extra color and perspective. In this remarkable tour de force, Joyce catalogues one day—June 16, 1904—in immense detail as Leopold Bloom wanders through Dublin—talking, observing, musing—and always remembering Molly, his passionate, wayward wife.  This long-awaited unabridged recording of James Joyce’s Ulysses is released to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of Bloomsday—a yearly celebration of the life of James Joyce.
