Musik und Musiker im Lichte des Humors und der Satire:Vers und Prosa H Osmin
Zapinette spends Christmas in the Big Apple! She reveals a slice of life from a perspective that is both rare and familiar. She is unique in her worldly travels, having been born in the United States, currently living in Paris, and visiting faraway lands with her beloved Unky Berky. She is all too common in her pain as the child of a broken home, her anger and hostility over her mother´s new beau (´´Fermin the Virmen´´), her confusion over the baffling realities of the adult world, and her inner longing to find her real father. Armed with a facile mind and an exposure to several languages, Zapinette relies heavily on her own vocabulary to describe the people and events that spin around her. 1. Language: English.

In a narrative rich in humor and uproarious dialogue, Off the Reservation explores modern presidential politics and whether honesty can find a place within it. Congressman Evan Gorgoni of Bloomington, IN, has served eight terms in a dysfunctional Congress and reached his limits of frustration. A medical event brings on the epiphany that there is no point in continuing to serve. But his frank expression on Meet the Press of his rationale for ending his political career is met with the unbidden call that he seek the White House - an unlikely destination for a vegan congressman with a disdain for political posturing. If he´s going to do it, he´s going to do it as no one has done it before.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Tiedemann.
