In the wild, unexplored coastal jungles of West Africa lives a wild human boy named Tarzan, the adopted son of a tribe of fierce almost-human anthropoid apes - but in reality, the unknown heir of a wealthy and titled English noble family. Then one day, a small party of American treasure-seekers is marooned on Tarzan´s beach, including a lovely Baltimore belle named Jane Porter. When she leaves, Tarzan quits his jungle life and learns the ways of civilized man, so that he can follow her. But after he arrives, he finds he must choose between his noble birthright and her future happiness.... The two books in this duology were the world´s introduction to Tarzan - possibly the most widely recognized character in fiction. Over the century, since he was introduced to us, he has starred in hundreds of books, comics, and films, and thousands of derivative bits of pop culture such as bubblegum cards and lunch pails. Only Bram Stoker´s Dracula has starred in more movies. Yet the Tarzan most people think they know is far different from the original Tarzan - the Tarzan you´ll meet in this audiobook. The Tarzan most of us know is a crude, powerful, primitive man who speaks in monosyllables (´Me Tarzan. You Jane. Where boy?´) . The original Tarzan was altogether different - fluent in at least four languages (Ape, French, English, and Arabic, in that order) and equally comfortable in the smoking room of a great ocean liner as he was in the savage jungle. This pulp-lit annotated edition of Burroughs´ first two Tarzan books tells the story of the ape-man´s origins, from his childhood adventures to his triumphant arrival as Lord Greystoke. 1.

E. L. Doctorow is acclaimed internationally for such novels as Ragtime, Billy Bathgate, and The March. Now here are Doctorow´s rich, revelatory essays on the nature of imaginative thought. In Creationists, Doctorow considers creativity in its many forms: from the literary (Melville and Mark Twain) to the comic (Harpo Marx) to the cosmic (Genesis and Einstein). As he wrestles with the subjects that have teased and fired his own imagination, Doctorow affirms the idea that ´´we know by what we create´´. Just what is Melville doing in Moby Dick? And how did The Adventures of Tom Sawyer impel Mark Twain to radically rewrite what we know as Huckleberry Finn? Can we ever trust what novelists say about their own work? How could Franz Kafka have written a book called Amerika without ever leaving Europe? In posing such questions, Doctorow grapples with literary creation not as a critic or as a scholar, but as one working writer frankly contemplating the work of another. It´s a perspective that affords him both protean grace and profound insight. Among the essays collected here are Doctorow´s musings on the very different Spanish Civil War novels of Ernest Hemingway and André Malraux; a candid assessment of Edgar Allan Poe as our ´´greatest bad writer´´; and a bracing analysis of the story of Genesis in which God figures as the most complex and riveting character. Rich in aphorism and anecdote, steeped in history and psychology, informed by a lifetime of reading and writing, Creationists opens a magnificent window into one of the great creative minds of our time. 1.

If the Roaring Twenties are remembered as the era of ´´flaming youth´´, it was F. Scott Fitzgerald who lit the fire. His semiautobiographical first novel, This Side of Paradise, became an instant best seller and established an image of seemingly carefree, party-mad young men and women out to create a new morality for a new, post-war America. It traces the early life of Amory Blaine from the end of prep school through Princeton to the start of an uncertain career in New York City. Alternately self-confident and self-effacing, torn between ambition and idleness, the self-absorbed, immature Amory yearns to run with Princeton´s rich, fast crowd and become one of the ´´gods´´ of the campus. Hopelessly romantic, he learns about love and sex from a series of beautiful young ´´flappers´´, women who leave him both exhilarated and devastated. Fitzgerald describes it all in intensely lyrical prose that fills the novel with a heartbreaking sense of longing, as Amory comes to understand that the sweet-scented springtime of his life is fragile and fleeting, disappearing into memory even as he reaches for it. 1.
