Meanwhile, Olivia's arrogant steward Malvolio is cruelly tricked by her uncle Sir Toby Belch, his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the maidservant Maria into believing his mistress loves him.
  • The Great Gatsby

    F. Scott Fitzgerald, Alexander Scourby

    Audio CD (BBC Audiobooks America, June 24, 2008)
    A true classic of American literature, The Great Gatsby celebrates a heightened sensibility to the promises of life, an American capacity for hope that remains unsullied even by the falsity of what it pursues. Fitzgeralds clean, elegant style evokes to perfection the glitter and charm of the Jazz Age, as well as the falseness of its values. Gatsby embodies the naïve American notion that it is possible to invent oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsbys youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated by both the display of enormous wealth and the essential integrity that he perceives in Gatsbys vision, becomes his confidante and accomplice in his plan to capture the heart of Daisy Buchanan.
