OOO! I'm squeaking into this collection too! 8-)

Here is "The Diary of A Madman" by Guy de Maupassant:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ghohor040_diaryofmadman_maupassant_ljb_128kb.mp3

Text: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3087/3087-h/3087-h.htm#link2H_4_0006

Duration: 21:12

N.B.:
At about 1:28, I say "the recesses of their soul...." The text actually says "the recesses of their souls...."
This was a grievous error on my part. :cry:
But I don't think it changes the meaning, so I left it as is.
I hope it's OK...LJB

Thought this one would make a nice companion piece for The Terrible Old Man - here's yet another awful sea-captain!

The Parrot
By Guy de Maupassant

Let me know if anything needs an edit! My French pronunciation isn't the best, but I think I managed the handful of names / places...
Thank you, Andrew! Your French pronunciation sounds quite natural to me, a non French speaker :mrgreen:
Just one edit needed, at around 6:10, after you say "2", there's a sentence missing "One night, when her husband was at sea, she was suddenly awakened by the wild roaring of the wind"
Thanks for the catch! Updated version is below - new time is 12:45 :)

You're very welcome to squeak into this collection, too :mrgreen:

Which text did you use? The text source provided does not match the text recorded, so I can't be sure if my PL notes are valid. So I had better check the text you used.

Weird!
I just now clicked on the gutenberg text link given above, and it went right to it.
It's in Gutenberg's "Original Short Stories, Volume 11 of 13" by Maupassant: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3087/3087-h/3087-h.htm

The text link works, but the wording does not match the one in your recording. Is that the text you used? That IS weird...

$&*@*!@
I had flagged the wrong text!
It was actually another of Gutenberg's prodigious output: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/593/593-h/593-h.htm#chap25
Now my only complaint is that this particular recording sounds horribly melodramatic. :roll:
O well...

Good evening -

I just uploaded the following:

Title: A Grammatical Ghost
Author: Elia Wilkinson Peattie (1862-1935)
Text URL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/1876/1876-h/1876-h.htm#link2H_4_0012

Another squeaker! :mrgreen:

Here is "The Last of Mrs. deBrugh" by H. Sivia:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ghohor040_lastofmrsdebrugh_sivia_ljb_128kb.mp3

Text: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/32468

Duration 18:35

N.B.:
I found at least 4 ways "deBrugh" can be pronounced. I chose the easiest, "deBROO."

N.B. also:
At about 1:47, I say "...what any ordinary human would do for such a kind employer...."
The text says "...what any ordinary human would do to such a kind employer...." -- which doesn't make sense to me, so I changed it.

...LJB
