Juliet Stevenson brings us the witty misadventures of Lady Arabella in The Female Quixote, a clever parody of Cervantes’ Don Quixote in which a young woman lives in expectation of the romantic adventures that she has read about in French novels. Meanwhile Nicholas Boulton reads The House of the Dead, Dostoyevsky’s semi-autobiographical account of life in a Siberian prison camp, and leads a cast recording of Wilkie Collins’s Armadale, with Lucy Scott as the malevolent charmer Lydia Gwilt. We also have economist Adam Smith’s magnum opus, The Wealth of Nations, read by Peter Wickham.
