The Door (Unabridged)

Add To Wish List + $49.48 ($54.98) - This item has been discontinued, and will no longer be available once out of stock.

Intense, brilliant and moving, The Door is a compelling story about the relationship between two women of opposing backgrounds and personalities - one, an intellectual and writer - the other, her hosuekeeper, a mysterious, elderly woman who sets her own rules and abjures religion, education, pretense and any kind of authority. Beneath this hardened exterior of Emerence lies a painful story that must be concealed. With great insight and clarity The Door explores themes of love, loyalty, pride and privacy and the barriers and secrets that govern them. This album is the first audiobook recording of this modern European classic. Len Rix's translation of The Door won the 2006 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize and was short-listed for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. The New York Times included it in their list of 2015's 10 Best Books.
