              There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today's modern age. Dr. Haider Warraich is a young and brilliant new voice in the con...versation about death and dying started by Dr. Sherwin Nuland and Atul Gawande. Dr. Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself. The most basic aspects of dying - the whys, wheres, whens, and hows - are almost nothing like what they were mere decades ago. Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. Modern Death, Dr. Warraich's debut book, will explore the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death. Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, Modern Death will provide listeners with an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences. Cover design by Jeremy Fink.

              The Moor's Account (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              A New York Times Notable Book. In this stunning work of historical fiction, Laila Lalami brings us the imagined memoirs of the first black explorer of America--a Moroccan slave whose testimony was left out of the official record. In 1527 the conquistador Pnfilo de Narvez sailed f...rom the port of Sanlcar de Barrameda with a crew of 600 men and nearly a hundred horses. His goal was to claim what is now the Gulf Coast of the United States for the Spanish crown and, in the process, become as wealthy and famous as Hernn Corts. But from the moment the Narvez expedition landed in Florida, it faced peril--navigational errors, disease, starvation, as well as resistance from indigenous tribes. Within a year there were only four survivors: the expedition's treasurer, lvar Nez Cabeza de Vaca; a Spanish nobleman named Alonso del Castillo Maldonado; a young explorer named Andrs Dorantes de Carranza; and Dorantes' Moroccan slave, Mustafa al-Zamori, whom the three Spaniards called Estebanico. These four survivors would go on to make a journey across America that would transform them from proud conquistadores to humble servants, from fearful outcasts to faith healers. The Moor's Account brilliantly captures Estebanico's voice and vision, giving us an alternate narrative for this famed expedition. As the dramatic chronicle unfolds, we come to understand that, contrary to popular belief, black men played a significant part in New World exploration, and Native American men and women were not merely silent witnesses to it. In Laila Lalami's deft hands, Estebanico's memoir illuminates the ways in which stories can transmigrate into history, even as storytelling can offer a chance for redemption and survival.

              The Game (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              By Jameson, Becca; Narrator Bishop, Hayden

              Cheyenne Decard has carried a smoldering torch for Riley Moreno for six months. She isn't sure if she wants to ignite him with the flame and watch him burn for leaving her hanging that night or strip off her clothes and beg him to set her skin on fire. Either way, she isn't prepa...red to face him at her company fundraiser. Riley Moreno has been kicking himself for leaving Cheyenne high and dry that night six months ago. It wasn't as if he had another option. She was way too innocent for his tastes, and she was the best friend of his buddy's fiancee. Off limits. However, he hasn't stopped thinking about what it would be like to dominate her delectable body. Cheyenne's life is finally coming together. She has a great marketing job she loves and has moved into her own apartment in downtown Atlanta. What she doesn't need is to get mixed up with the man who has infiltrated her dreams and forced her to invest in far too many batteries. Riley has baggage she'd rather not penetrate - namely his ex-fiancee, Christine. But that crazy woman has returned to wreak havoc in Riley's life and all those who get in her path. She's moved to Atlanta, taken a job, and made it her mission to win Riley back into her good graces. Cheyenne is going to need some very thick skin and a spine made of steel if she wants to make things work with Riley and keep her sanity at the same time. Her entire life is falling apart around the seams while she grasps at thin tendrils of sanity. Riley has a tough decision to make. Should he risk going behind Cheyenne's back to stop his ex from ruining his tenuous new relationship? And will his efforts prove futile when Cheyenne finds out he ignored her pleas to let her handle things on her own?

              Born to elegant but frivolous parents, Harriet grows up ignored and unguided, and retains a curious innocence that neither her marriage to Freddie Lytton, nor her friendship with the beautiful Tessa can dispel. Freddie is far older than she is - a companion rather than a lover - ...and slightly disapproving of Tessa and her irresponsible, attractive husband, Jack. Yet all four are bound together: by their backgrounds, their children, by Harriet s unspoken feelings for Jack and by the tragedy that lies in wait for all of them.

But this riveting account of her storied life and career had to wait for publication until after her death, so concerned was Gardner with its frankness. 'I either write the book or sell the jewels, ' Gardner told co-author Peter Evans, 'and I'm kinda sentimental about the jewels.' The legendary actress serves up plenty of gems in these pages, reflecting with delicious humour and cutting wit on a life that took her from an impoverished childhood in North Carolina to the heights of stardom. Get ready for the most revealing Hollywood autobiography in decades.
