New This Month

Nicholas Boulton brings us Justine, Balthazar, Mountolive and Clea, Lawrence Durrell’s atmospheric and poetic tetralogy of novels, together known as The Alexandria Quartet.

It is undoubtedly one of the greatest works of the 20th century.

We also have Man and Wife by Wilkie Collins and My Childhood by Maxim Gorky, two more captivating recordings by Nicholas Boulton, as well as Colonel Chabert, Balzac’s gripping novella about a soldier’s attempts to restore his identity after being presumed dead, read by the inimitable Bill Homewood.
