The Nine Cloud Dream

  by Kim Man-Jung

  translated by Heinz Insu Fenkl

  read by David Shih     

  Tantor Audio

Release Date: February 12, 2019

Purchase at:

Often considered the highest achievement in Korean fiction, The Nine Cloud Dream poses the question: Will the life we dream of truly make us happy? Written in 17th-century Korea, this classic novel's wondrous story begins when a young monk living on a sacred Lotus Peak in China succumbs to the temptation of eight fairy maidens. For doubting his master's Buddhist teachings, the monk is forced to endure a strange punishment: reincarnation as the most ideal of men.

On his journey through this new life full of material, martial, and sensual accomplishments beyond his wildest dreams, he encounters the eight fairies in human form, each one furthering his path toward understanding the fleeting value of his good fortune. As his successes grow, he comes closer and closer to finally comprehending the fundamental truths of the Buddha's teachings.

Practical Equiality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation

  by Robert Tsai

  read by David Shih     

  Highbridge Audio

Release Date: February 19, 2019

Purchase at:

Practical Equality is an original and compelling book on the intersection of law and society. Tsai, a leading expert on constitutional law who has written widely in the popular press, traces challenges to equality throughout American history: from the oppression of emancipated slaves after the Civil War to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to President Trump's ban on Muslim travelers. He applies lessons from these and other past struggles to such pressing contemporary issues as the rights of sexual minorities and the homeless, racism in the criminal justice system, police brutality, voting restrictions, oppressive measures against migrants, and more.

Release Date: March 26, 2019

Purchase at:

Sarah Soon may have recovered from cancer - in body - but her brush with mortality has left the usually confident OB/GYN shaken about her future and herself. When she unexpectedly runs into Jake Li, her brother's annoying high school BFF who betrayed her trust, he's the last person she wants to see. She doesn't need the now-disturbingly hot social worker hanging around while she sorts herself out, yet suddenly he's inescapable.
