Robert Burns - The Life and Art
A philandering plowman? Or the best read man in his country’s literature and the saviour of a disappearing Scottish folk tradition?
Truman Capote:Breakfast at Tiffanys
Capote's dark novella is now associated with the iconic romantic film with Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. Originally based on his mother's tragic story and written with Marilyn Monroe in mind, this is a seriously dark take on the American Dream.
Carroll: Alice in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll's classic tale of a land where nothing is as it seems.
Miguel de Cervantes - Don Quixote
Once there was a Spanish knight who charged at windmills! Is this all there is to the great epic tale by Shakespeare’s contemporary?

A play about crazy people at the end of an era, or the greatest play about the end of serfdom and the beginning of a new note in Russian history?
Colette - Gigi
A charming tale of a young Parisian girl who marries well? Or Colette’s exploration of her own virtual child abuse, written fifty years after the event. This short novel is a wonderful fable about a particular section of French society at the turn of the 19th Century.
Wilkie Collins - The Woman in White
A mad woman on the loose in 1860s London, or a lady in extreme and justified fear for her life? Collins will keep you enthralled and appalled with his intricate plot and brilliant cast of characters. And is Count Fosco the villain of the piece?
Conrad's Heart of Darkness
Discover about this 1900 novel which has inspired endless derivatives, including the film 'Apocalypse Now'. Conrad drew on his own journey on the river Congo, deep into the heart of Africa. He gives us the definitive dissection of the full downward potential of an innately good man. This novel is the ultimate exploration of the nature of human duality.
Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol
‘Bah! Humbug!’ An exploration into the origins of Scrooge and the absolute necessity of charity and compassion for a happy life.
Charles Dickens - A Tale of Two Cities
LONDON AND PARIS…THE GUILLOTINE. A story of war, love and self-sacrifice…the ultimate sacrifice of which the human is capable!
Fyedor Dostoyevsky - The Brothers Karamazov
A drama of patricide and intense family rivalry. This is Dostoyevsky’s absolute masterpiece. How does it come out of his own dramatic life?
Doyle:The Hound of the Baskervilles
Conan Doyle had killed off Sherlock Holmes but was forced by public demand to bring him back to life. This is the story where Holmes returns, this time to solve the case of the Baskerville demon who kills only members of one family...or does it? Enjoy the grim setting of Dartmoor and the passions which lurk under the bleak exterior.
