Bashan And I by Thomas Mann (1875 - 1955). Translated by Herman George Scheffauer (1876 - 1927)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/bashan-and-i-by-thomas-mann/

Volunteers outside the USA: Thomas Mann died in 1955. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years <p>
Simple and unpretentious as a statement by Francis d’Assisi, yet full of a gentle modern sophistication and humour, this little work will bring delight and refreshment to all who seek flight from the heavy-laden hour. It is, moreover, one of the most subtle and penetrating studies of the psychology of the dog that has ever been written—tender yet unsentimental, realistic and full of the detail of masterly observation and description, yet in its final form and precipitation a work of exquisite literary art. ( From the Foreword by Herman George Scheffauer)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61284
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

MW coming up.

edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. You might consider mentioning the translator only in the first intro and last outro. And certainly not mentioning the birth-death dates each time you give the translator's name.
