This month marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen’s classic comedy of manners, money and love – Sense and Sensibility. I’ll talk with Professor Rachel Brownstein about her new book which poses the question, Why Jane Austen?
Next, Maggie Linton talks with Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal about how to take a breath, take a step back, and achieve Transcendence – in this case, through meditation.
And finally the best known film critic of our time, Roger Ebert, has written his memoirs, and we’ll hear a little bit of his new book, Life Itself.
But first, Maggie has the top-ten Non Fiction downloads from audible.com. [Original Broadcast Date: September 13, 2011]
