A unicorn, a haphazard wizard, and a spunky scullery woman journey to the dreaded kingdom of Haggaard, an evil ruler who, with the help of a bull-shaped demon, imprisons all the unicorns of the world. This is one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th century. Since its publication in 1968 it has never been out of print, with six million-plus copies sold around the world, and it has been translated into more than 20 languages.

Beautifully read by the author, I have re read this book many times. It is a timeless classic of the kind you find as rarely as a unicorn. the music was a great addition also.

From her first day at Westwind Cremation & Burial, 23-year-old Caitlin Doughty threw herself into her curious new profession. Coming face-to-face with the very thing we go to great lengths to avoid thinking about, she started to wonder about the lives of those she cremated and the mourning families they left behind, and found herself confounded by people's erratic reactions to death. Exploring our death rituals - and those of other cultures - she pleads the case for healthier attitudes around death and dying.

Caitlin Doughty is a brilliant performer of her own work, personally I feel she should contemplate voice work when she has time. Her life is fascinating and she makes points not otherwise raised in society. Really recommend to anyone and already have.
