Arnold Wesker is one of the best writers for our generation. His dialogue flows in a natural way and his stories are full of heart laced with humour. In this edition you get the trilogy of plays: Chicken Soup with Barley; Roots; I'm Talking About Jerusalem. It is a Jewish family saga which stays in your mind long after you have read it. Also, some of the monologues are good heartfelt speeches that do well in auditions.

In Chancery / John Galsworthy. - Middlesex : Penguin. - 320 s. ; 18 cm.
On the surface it's the story of Soames Forsyte, the quintessential icon of the growth of the upper middle classes and the decline of the nobility during the Victorian era. Descended from a farmer in Dorset in the not-too-distant past, Soames is a lawyer and a man of property. He buys wisely, sells more wisely, and husbands his wealth and that of the family. He is in control of everything that affects him, except one thing--his wife. Desiring to possess the sensitive, beautiful, genteel but poor Irene, and with the help of a callous mother, Soames pressures Irene into becoming his wife. From this single mistake, the one time Soames let passion rule, his life and the lives of his family and their descendants are changed in unpredictable and frightening ways. Galsworthy's theme is the constant tussle in life between property and art, love and possession, freedom and convention. In the fine tradition of family sagas, these themes play themselves out over and over with each generation.
