In a narrative rich in humor and uproarious dialogue, Off the Reservation explores modern presidential politics and whether honesty can find a place within it. Congressman Evan Gorgoni of Bloomington, IN, has served eight terms in a dysfunctional Congress and reached his limits of frustration. A medical event brings on the epiphany that there is no point in continuing to serve. But his frank expression on Meet the Press of his rationale for ending his political career is met with the unbidden call that he seek the White House - an unlikely destination for a vegan congressman with a disdain for political posturing. If he´s going to do it, he´s going to do it as no one has done it before.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Tiedemann.

Short stories and poems from humorist and rom-com mystery novelist Anne R. Allen. Some stories, like ´´Vive La Revolution´´, which first appeared in the edgy humor magazine Opium, are satire, and others are more heartfelt. But they are all humorous portraits of rebellious women at various stages of their lives. From aging Betty Jo, who feels so invisible she contemplates robbing a bank, to neglected 10-year-old Maude, who turns to a fantasy Elvis for the love she´s denied by her patrician family, to a bloodthirsty Valley Girl version of Madam Defarge these women--young and old--are all rebelling against the stereotypes and traditional roles that hold them back. Which is, of course, why Grandma bought that car.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: CS Perryess, Claire Vogel. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/030038/bk_acx0_030038_sample.mp3.

With its acid edge and wicked humor, JL Davis (writing as Jeff Davis) delivers a rapid fire depiction of bureaucracy gone wild that digs underneath the fingernails of the typical blue collar worker, satirizing both modern day relationships and business life. Specifically, if we can´t stand our jobs and families, live for the day to escape! Unlucky in love and trapped in a dead-end job, Jack Snaggler thinks his fortune is about to change when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous brunette named Paradise. Think again. When a shady fast food chef goes missing and coworkers start mysteriously disappearing, Jack finds himself framed for murder. If he wants to stay alive long enough to ever see Paradise again, he´ll first need to escape a conspiracy that at each turn, involves almost everyone he knows. Living under the umbrella of a politically incorrect and bureaucratic world are people like Ed Shoemaker, a disgruntled office worker who wants to off his wife and flee to Fiji; Eileen Klump, a secretary in the throes of menopause who suffers from periodic breakdowns and intermittent stays at the local mental facility; Lance Sheppard, who makes his living the good old-fashioned way: disability fraud. Regardless of the premise, the book punctures the fabric of what´s simply funny with a pervasive shadow of underlying truth regarding Middle America and the world at large. Part Big Brother, part corporate mindset, part 60s cool, and part dysfunctional love interest. The road to paradise has never been so tainted or hilarious. 1. Language: English.

Helene drommer om en karriere som skuespiller, men desværre er hendes forelskelse i teateret ikke gengældt. Helenes hund har til gengæld talent. Den forvilder sig ind på Husets Teater og helt ind på scenen under prøverne til et nyt stykke, og pludselig har Helene en aftale om et møde med teaterdirektøren. Tilbuddet fra teaterdirektøren er ikke lige, hvad Helene havde forestillet sig, men har man først fået foden indenfor, er det bare om at stå fast og bevise, at man er parat til at gå hele vejen. Biroller er en roman fra bag scenetæppet, hvor alle kneb gælder i jagten på den rigtige rolle. Drama og sort humor spiller sammen i en historie om, at det er vigtigt at sigte højt, hvis man vil være stjerne, også selv om man må begynde på alle fire.Please note: This audiobook is in Danish. 1.
