Gentlemen and Pigs could best be described and compared to the television show Seinfeld. It's a book about nothing. But of course we all know that it is the story within the story that ties all the loose ends together as you laugh yourself silly along the way. Gentlemen and Pigs is a real hoot! Its author and narrator, Robert C. Brewster, brings his characters to life in some very unique ways. Sit back, listen, and enjoy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert C. Brewster.

The Two Gentlemen of Valasna is an adaptation of William Shapkespeare's early romantic comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The setting for this adaptation is 19th-century India during the time of British rule - 1857 to be precise, during the weeks leading up to the Indian mutiny. This recording was originally produced for BBC Radio 3 and was recorded entirely in India using local Bollywood actors, Indian TV celebrities, and actors from the Indian English theatre tradition. This is a highly entertaining and unusual dramatisation well worthy of reaching an international audience. 1. Language: English.

Only when he's with his friends can he find some peace. So when an anonymous journalist threatens one of the Perfect Gentlemen, Connor vows to take down the person behind the computer by whatever means necessary - even if it means posing as his target's bodyguard.

Like no record before or since, Gentlemen is fraught with the psychological warfare, bedroom drama, Catholic guilt, reprehensible deception, and shame that coincide with relationships gone seriously wrong. Its seemingly thick skin is rife with argument, infection, claustrophobia, temptation, accusation, illness, addiction, blood, scourge, and spite. And then there's the music. Singer Greg Dulli's liquor-cabinet confessions are chased with some of the blackest-sounding rock ever committed to tape by a white band. Hopped-up on primal energy, the mesmerizing R&B, funk, slide-blues, garage, and chamber-pop strains are tied to a come-hither soulfulness perfumed with hyssop and stained with nicotine. To this day, Gentlemen remains as cursed as its controversial narrator, an album out of time even in its time. Released in October 1993, when grunge ruled the world, it sold far less than works by most "alternative" bands of the day. Despite glowing reviews and feverish tour support, Gentlemen faded from view--and yet it remains dearly beloved to almost everyone who's heard it. Drawing on new, in-depth interviews with all of the band members, Bob Gendron dissects the record's charisma, arrangements and lyrics. He also delves into the memories, histories, experiences and influences of the Afghan Whigs, most notably those driving Dulli, a polarizing frontman whose fierce pretentiousness, GQ appearance and gloves-off boisterousness concealed deep-rooted mental depression and chemical dependency. 1.
