About the Author: Charles Lamb (1774-1834) was a nineteenth-century English poet and essayist whose best-known works Essays of Elia and The Last Essays of Elia include such titles as "The Two Races of Men," "Confessions of a Drunkard," and "A Bachelor's Complaint of the Behaviour of Married People."

Mary Lamb (1764–1847) collaborated with her brother Charles on several books for children, including their famous children's collection Tales from Shakespeare, published in 1807.

British actress and narrator Josephine Bailey has won ten AudioFile Earphones Awards and a prestigious Audie Award, and Publishers Weekly named her Best Female Narrator in 2002.

Simon Vance, a former BBC Radio presenter and newsreader, is a full-time actor who has appeared on both stage and television. He has recorded over eight hundred audiobooks and has earned five coveted Audie Awards, and he has won fifty-seven Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which has named him a Golden Voice.
