This compelling series combines action and historical drama in fascinating tales of an American Tory who stumbles into the dark world of the vampire. Completely revised and expanded, each of these new editions includes more than 40 pages of new material. In this introduction to the series, young Jonathan Barrett arrives in London in 1773 to pursue his college education. His fate among the undead is sealed by the unnaturally beautiful Nora Jones, who seduces him and consumes his blood. Unbeknownst to Jonathan, he is no longer the same man, something he soon discovers upon his return to America to join the armed forces and defend his country. Rather than an appetite for traditional fare, he has developed a strange craving for human blood. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frazer Douglas.

Writers Aleksander Hemon and Wayne Barrett on this edition of Fresh Air. Hemon was born in Sarajevo in 1964. While in his early 20s, he came to the United States as a tourist. On the day he was supposed to return to Sarajevo, his home city came under siege. He was forced to stay in the U.S. He then began working on his English and now writes in English, even though it is not his first language. His first book is a collection of stories called The Question of Bruno. Barrett is the author of the book, Rudy!: An Investigative Biography of Rudolph Giuliani, the mayor of New York City who recently dropped out of the highly visible New York Senate race after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Mayor is a controversial figure; some think of him as a savior who has cleaned up Manhattan´s streets, while others see him as a turn around artist and brute. Barrett´s book traces Giuliani´s life and career - from college student, to U.S. attorney, to mayor of New York City and possible Senate candidate. Barrett is a senior editor at the Village Voice. He has been covering politics and Giuliani for over 20 years. (Broadcast Date: July 12, 2000) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Gross.

Galbraith, Jean Baudrillard and Syd Barrett, Estee Lauder and Hunter Thomson, Bip (the legendary mime artist Marcel Marceau) and even Alex the African Grey (science´s best known parrot). 1.

Seduced by Stratton is the fourth of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except for Barrett, Fitz and Alex, because they´re taken. And Weston, who is still riding the ugly-love roller coaster with one of the Atwell sisters.) Stratton English, the hottest, youngest, most devastatingly handsome CFO in Philadelphia, has a problem: women make him nervous. Really nervous. Catastrophically nervous. Socially awkward to an extreme, he´s apt to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, and it´s rarely something a woman wants to hear. Quietly in love with his neighbor, Amy, he has no idea how to make his move, but he is committed to figuring out a way to seduce her. Valeria Campanile, who Stratton knows through one of his four brothers, is a PhD candidate who moonlights as a dance instructor on the side. Ironically, even though Val studies courtship rituals, she can´t seem to find herself courted. Pursued by boys from the ´´old neighborhood´´ who promise to overlook the fact that she´s so smart, she longs to meet someone who romances her mind as well as her heart. When Stratton helps Valeria with a financial problem, she is anxious to return the favor. But will Stratton, who needs Val´s expertise to win Amy, find himself seducing Val instead? 1.
