Dr. Glyn Thompson’s digital book, Duchamp’s Urinal? The Facts Behind the Façade, at first tends to make the heart sink. ´´Do I really want,´´ one tends to ask oneself, ´´to learn this much about the trade in porcelain sanitary wares, as it existed in the United States during the second decade of the 20th century?´´ Dr. Thompson has done his homework, and he is insistent that you should do it too. ´´No skipping over the chapter-and-verse, boy, in search of something a bit racier.´´Some of the facts are, however, sufficiently racy in themselves. The urinal, or Fountain, as it is now officially called, turns out not to have been the work - or wheeze - of Duchamp himself, but that of a mad German baroness called Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. Her biographical details are almost too good to be true. Her maiden name was Plötz (as in ´´I’m just going to plotz here and wait while you do the shopping.´´). She was born in Swinemünde (you can read that as ´´swine mouth´´) in Pomerania, and studied art in not-yet-infamous Dachau, near Munich. Baron Leopold von Freytag Loringhoven was her third husband, whom she married in New York in 1913, having emigrated in America in 1910. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Van Riper.

Another winner from the fast-paced racetrack mystery series that gives the listener a run for his money. The latest, and most entertaining installment yet, in this popular series features the return of Charlie Bradshaw´s scheming alter ego Victor Plotz, ´´without whom the world would be a much stuffier place´´ (The New York Times Book Review). Victor is as crooked as Charlie is straight, and he´ll do anything to make a quick buck, including running up to Montreal to collect a suspicious suitcase for a miserly old man. But when he decides to farm the job out to a bumbling black belt accomplice, all hell breaks loose - and the fun begins. In a slapstick, sinister farce with an unforgettable cast that includes Vic´s main squeeze, Rosemary, an Amazon stripper named Sheila, and two kneecapping thugs called Steel and Clover, Victor and Charlie embark on the trail of every deadly sin from dirty money to outright murder. Once again Charlie Bradshaw and his hapless henchmen provide what the Boston Sunday Globe calls ´´jaunty and colorful, good tongue-in-cheek fun´´ - and what fans of the series have come to expect. 1.
