A portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce ( Recording )
21 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 'A portrait of the artist as a young man, ' Joyce describes the early life of Stephen Dedalus: significant memories from infancy, schooldays, family life, his first taste of sin, guilt, repentance-- and his passage to freedom as he elects to leave Ireland forever. This is, in effect, an autobiography. Stephen is Joyce; every person he encounters and every incident he experiences, is drawn from life. The writing, though, displays the colour and imagination of the very finest fiction, in language which cries out to be read aloud"--Container
The third policeman by Flann O'Brien ( Recording )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder. Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased after the novel was featured in the 5 October 2005 episode of the hit television series Lost. The series' creators have said that anyone who has read the book "will have a lot more ammunition when dissecting plotlines" of the show. Here it comes to life in a new unabridged recording. Even with Ulysses and Finnegans wake behind him, James Joyce might have been envious" wrote one critic about the work of Flann O'Brien

The life and works of W.B. Yeats by W. B Yeats ( Recording )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century. The Lake Isle of Inisfree, He wishes for the cloths of heaven, Down by the Salley Gardens, The secret rose - these are just a few of the poems that made William Butler Yeats an international figure. Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics

Seven pillars of wisdom by T. E Lawrence ( Recording )

Although Lawrence of Arabia died in 1935, the story of his life has captured the imagination of succeeding generations. The seven pillars of wisdom is a monumental work in which he chronicles his role in leading the Arab revolt against the Turks during the First World War. A reluctant leader, and wracked by guilt at the duplicity of the British, Lawrence nevertheless threw himself into his role, suffering the blistering desert conditions and masterminding military campaigns which culminated in the triumphant march of the Arabs into Damascus

Memoir by John McGahern ( Recording )

This is the story of John McGahern's childhood; of his mother's' death, his father's anger and bafflement; and his own discovery of literature, and his ambition to become a writer. At the heart of the book is an unembarrassed homage by a loving son to a woman who protected him and his sisters from-his father's unpredictable moods. His memory of walks with her in the lanes near their rural home, of her naming flowers for him and by his joy in her presence, is recovered with great lyrical tact
