              Ilsa (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              By L'Engle, Madeleine; Narrator Halstead, Graham

              A novel about the darker side of love by the bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time and the Crosswicks Journals. From the moment Henry Porcher first sees Ilsa Brandes, he worships her. Despite controversy surrounding the young girl, Henry is drawn to her, a fascination that turn...s into a lifelong infatuation. As the years pass, Ilsa's memory never leaves him, not until the day he returns to their sleepy Southern hometown and renews their childhood friendship. Henry watches as she becomes a wife, then a mother, then a widow, irrevocably changed by tragedy. This rare and sought-after novel is a portrait of a remarkable woman bound by both the stifling conventions of her time and place, and her own sense of honor and purpose. A departure from L'Engle's later works, Ilsa is a dark, intriguing novel about passion, fixation, and the real price of unrequited love by an author renowned for her children's classics as well as her candid personal memoirs.

              Yan Lianke has secured his place as contemporary China's most essential and daring novelist, with his superlative gifts for storytelling and penetrating eye for truth (New York Times Book Review). His novel, The Day the Sun Died--winner of the Dream of the Red Chamber Award, one ...of the most prestigious honors for Chinese-language novels--is a haunting story of a town caught in a waking nightmare. In a little village nestled in the Balou mountains, fourteen-year-old Li Niannian and his parents run a funeral parlor. One evening, he notices a strange occurrence. Instead of preparing for bed, more and more neighbors appear in the streets and fields, carrying on with their daily business as if the sun hadn't already set. Li Niannian watches, mystified. As hundreds of residents are found dreamwalking, they act out the desires they've suppressed during waking hours. Before long, the community devolves into chaos, and it's up to Li Niannian and his parents to save the town before sunrise. Set over the course of one increasingly bizarre night, The Day the Sun Died is a propulsive, darkly sinister tale from a world-class writer.

              Presented for the first time in audio format, the chilling transcript of Stephen G Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth's interviews with notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, as seen on the hit Netflix documentary series Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes--based on their New Yo...rk Times bestselling book. Handsome and educated, Ted Bundy killed scores of women during the 1970s, eventually confessing to thirty murders committed over seven states between 1974 and 1978. In 1979, much to the surprise of the nation, Bundy made the bold decision to represent himself in the Chi Omega murder case, thinking that his intelligence and enigmatic charm could best the prosecution. He was convicted, however, and was incarcerated on death row in Florida State Prison. After he exhausted all appeals, Bundy spoke to detectives, confessing to other homicides he committed across several states. He also spoke frankly about himself, his victims, and his crimes to famed journalists Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth. Thirty years later, thanks to the combination of an unlikely killer, a sophisticated and cerebral court case, and a series of Death Row interviews that represented the dynamics of any extraordinary psychological profile, this prolific serial killer continues to intrigue and haunt the American popular imagination. Yet as Netflix's sensational show reveals, an old case is never as preserved as it may seem. Presented in audio format for the first time, Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer provides shocking insights into the killer's 11th-hour confessions before his death in a Florida electric chair in January 1989. Drawn from more than 150 hours of exclusive tape-recorded interviews with Bundy in 1980 by Michaud and Aynesworth--in which the veteran journalist used a psychological tactic to get Bundy talking in the third person-this audiobook, voiced by a cast of narrators, is a harrowing portrait of a serial killer's final reckoning and the two journalists trying to underst
